ID this lamp?

jmfirefighter20December 17, 2011

Hi everyone-

About three years ago I restored two of these lamps to how they look now and when I had them apart I was unable to find any manufacturer's info on them. Does anybody have any idea who may have made these? I think, from older pictures of the building they are now on, that they are at least from the 50's if not before (there is a picture of the building from the 30's but I am unable to make out if they are the same lights). These are over the doors of a old fire station.

Light brackets in this general style have been around since at least the '20s. Those are particularly attractive..........most are plain with no adornment. No, I don't have a clue as to manufacturer.

If you google with the terms "vintage industrial lighting" or "vintage barn lighting", you will find other examples of this type of fixture. Many reproductions are still being made today so it's impossible to tell if the one pictured is old or new.
