Bruce's Black Book page 484 shows Gas Lamps furnished between Approx. #7000 and #10,600 from Mfr. M&E. Anybody know who this supplier was? Interesting that Carbide Generator supplier is not shown on build sheets where most other equipment makers are noted?
Regards,
Scott

None of you early parts guys here know anything about this lamp that was used in a significant volume of early production? How about a brass lamp company name beginning with the letter "M"?
Regards,
Scott

Miller company out of Meridian, Ct. Made lamps from the 1890s to 1920 and the MCFADDIN & Company out of New York that made lamps from 1909 to the late 30ís. Last nut not least the Mantle lamp company of America.

Scott,
I found "M & E mfg." listed in "The Automobile" magazine, 1909, on the "advertisers" page. Unfortunately, the magazine is a bound compilation so the page listed in the index (s) doesn't correspond with the bound pages. It's late here and I need to call it a night (spent a while on this..... ), The link to the google magazine (google books):

https://books.google.com/books?id=xGUxAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA726&dq=1909+brass+lamp+%22M+%26+E%22&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjsvJzjtJfXAhUBhyYKHbbiASsQ6AEIKzAB#v=onepage&q&f=false

It appears any of the indexes (several 1909 issues bound together) have a listing for "M & E mfg." If a person takes the time to search page by page through one issue, there should be an advertisement (?) to correspond.

Problem is, we don't know if this "M & E mfg." is what you're looking for. Good luck,
Rob

Great info Rob and others....Does anyone own a set or photos of these? I am inclined to believe these are more rare than the Atwood Castle lamps, although this is purely speculative on my part, since so little is apparently known of them. It would be interesting to know whether these displayed Ford embossments as others of that timeframe did, or whether these may be one of the unmarked "generic" lamps that are routinely discussed here.
Regards,
Scott
