This is probably a question for Arne but I'm interested in anything anyone might have to offer. I'm trying to determine if the lamp below is a manufactured item or just a nice example of a homemade product. The base is a wood turning and the rest appears to be metal. The reason for wondering about manufactured vs homemade is the lack of symmetry with respect to the insulators on the lamppost and the turned wood base. I've rummaged through everything I have with respect to Bing, Fandor, Bub, Marklin, etc and haven't found anything (but then I'm not claiming my library is definitive) so, if this is a production item, would anyone know who made it and when.
What are the dimensions? Height, Width of base, etc.
The only lights/signals I recall on wooden bases (and I may be mistaken) are some Carlise & Finch or other early trains that were on display at the TCA Museum.
I don't have any dimensions - just the picture.
Have you asked the owner? The two I saw are both the same, look pretty good for being hand made
John, no, I didn't. However, since he lists most of the early train manufacturers in his ad I think it's reasonable to assume he doesn't know either. To be fair, I've had good dealings with him in the past and its been my experience that when he knows the manufacturer he makes it a point of noting the manufacturer in the ad.
