Dramatic Semaphore Signal Lamps 

Late 19th to Early 20th Century

Presented is a fine pair of turn of the 19th Century Semaphore signal lamps.  In our research, the closest examples of these lamps we could find were the signal/semaphore lamps used in railroad switching yards or stations.  We date these to be late 19th or early 20th century.

The industrial character and large size of these lamps  produce a very dramatic display presentation

Condition:  The lamps have seen considerable use which is not surprising given their industrial application.  The glass lenses on both sides are in good condition showing no cracks.  Each lamp has its fuel container.  The lamps have been polished for display and show several dents and some solder repair work.
