Incomplete pair of brass lamps - $180.00
I'm not sure if they are Model T.
Hopefully someone that is more knowledgeable than I will be able to identify these.
I can email more pictures to anyone that is interested.

Rich, the mounting brackets on the sides of your lamps are set up for a "finger mount" bracket. This mounting system was used for horse drawn carriages, not sure about this set up for early automobile side lamp application. Keep in mind that early automobiles were a carry over from horse drawn carriages to the automobile. Pretty much a motorized carriage and the early automobile was developed from there. Henry Ford was a frugal gentleman, wouldn't surprise me a bit that he would have used bits, parts and pieces to complete a side lamp versus throwing away completely good side lamp and start over with a different mounting bracket !!! Just doesn't make sense from a frugal stand point !!!

John the mounting brackets are correct for cars. Ford did not make lamps, even in 1927, they were made by outside company's. While they were a carry over from the carriages, they were not made up from old stock and had to stay lit at 25-30 MPH which was way faster then a horse.
