Lot #150 - Boston & Maine - Peter Gray - Classification Lamps




Railroad Boston & Maine  
Size 13 1/2" tall, 4 1/2" lenses
Type Peter Gray - oil burners
Condition Excellent 

Pair of Peter Gray B&MRR locomotive classification lamps. Complete set with green insert glass panels intact. The early Boston & Maine used 2 lenses on the locomotive classification lamps. These lamps have two mounting brackets each. They stand 13 1/2" tall and the lenses are 4 1/2" in diameter. Both have the correct round founts and long shaft burners. Both have wire bails and cookie cutter tops. Both have the same B&MRR applied tags and both have the Peter Gray & Sons rectangular maker's tags. Both have intact "peek holes". This is a very nice set of class lamps. The only thing I could find wrong is a missing exterior wick retention plate. Even I could probably fabricate this small piece. A wonderful set of old oil burning classification lamps from a classy maker. Excellent condition.
