Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: OT- tail light identification

I bought this tail light at a swap meet to add to my wall of other tail lights and plates but I am curious if anyone knows what type of car it came on? I do not think it is an accessory as the aluminum mounting bracket on the back looks specific to one car rather than a universal set-up.

Thanks, Chris

Chris,I sold a taillight just like that to a guy for a Stutz,it was all brass and he called it the "mantle clock" style. That one may be too valuable to leave on the wall.

Is that an Essex or a Dodge tail light below that one?

Steve, this tail light is brass under the black paint and the trim ring is nickel. David, the tail light below is a dodge.

You guys may have nailed it.I looked at stutz pictures online and found what looks to be a very similar light on this stutz.

The 2nd Stuze tail light pic is closer in appearance to Chris's than the 13 Stuze one is. The 1st Stuze tail light bracket is flat in appearance wheras the 2nd has an offset where the license plate bolts on to. Look close in the 2nd pic and you can see it.
