For Sale: Non-Ford but a great and significant pair of Early LARGE Bleriot All Brass Sidelamps

Post by GGZ » Sat Apr 17, 2021 1:18 pm

Here are a very impressive and large pair of Bleriot Sidelamps from the pre-1915 era. These lamps are missing their lower burners and oil fonts but otherwise appear complete. As they sit, they measure about 13 1/2" in overall height. The main lamp bodies measure about 6" square and the lenses measure about 5" square. They are made to be used as oil lamps or electric lamps and each have their original socket holders still mounted within one of the brass lamp walls.


On the rear of both lights are the original "Bleriot London and Paris" tags. Both lights have the matching stamped serial numbers of 16196 and a small Bleriot signature engraved into the brass.

These are in excellent condition. I do not see any damage to the brass. On top has a few very small dings. The interior silver plated reflectors are extremely clean. All of the glass appears in very good condition including the smaller, round lenses which are set into the square panel lenses.

These are very high quality lamps and would be suitable for a variety of significant, early motorcars. They are in excellent original condition and present extremely well. The construction quality and detail is superb throughout. A rare find.

The price is 1,200.00 USD for the pair including shipping and insurance within the USA I accept PayPal for payment. I have several highly detailed photos I can send to interested parties. Please email directly at: motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274 for more information. I DO NOT CHECK PMs and won't see your reply to this post.

Thank you very much.

I wonder if these have any connection with the early French aviator named Bleriot. (?)

"Louis Charles Joseph Blériot .... was a French aviator, inventor, and engineer. He developed the first practical headlamp for cars and established a profitable business manufacturing them, using much of the money he made to finance his attempts to build a successful aircraft." - Wikipedia.
Dave Rice had told me this years ago. He had a wonderful Panhard-Levassor with original Blériot lights.
When did I do that?

Price reduced to 1,100.00 INCLUDING shipping and insurance within the USA.

I will consider trading for some 1909-1911 Corcoran round front sidelamps, like those used on early Buicks, Model T/A Ford speed equipment or early Model T parts.
