My T is 1915 as uses electric lamps. However I have found a lamp I was thinking of buying just to put on display in my garage. Can anyone please identify make/model age etc please and if possible what would be reasonable price to pay? Many thanks.

The tops looks like these Castle Model 1206 on Ebay.

Thanks for the input. Consensus seems to be that my lamp is off a 1910 Speedwell.Didn't think it was any T lamp I recognised. Amyway..I bought it for $160.00 USD

The 1206 Castle lights were used on 1912 Overlands. This light would be a bit too small for a Speedwell. I dought Speedwell would have used a Castle lame they were not the top of the line lamp company.

Check with Mile Silvera in Nevada he has at least 1 early Speedwell and might have 2.

just sayin'
