Default Are these hearse coach lamps ?

There is a guy near Diggers who wants to sell these lamps and he was told they came off a vintage hearse.

Anyone think or know they could have been on a old hearse ?

Thanks,
Darren

They don't look like they came off an old hearse, the do look like they were set on each end of the casket during viewing. Are they candle or oil?

Bill

I have no idea if they are oil or candle but I could ask if you want to know.

He wants 50.00 for the pair. I could get them if anyone wanted them.

With Walt's reply, I don't want them. THANKS WALT !

Darren

If they were cast coach lamps in the castings under the base before they attached them to the marble bases should be a cast number, that number can be searched to the mfg of the pieces. But they do look very early 70's as a cheap gilded era. They look like candles and what is their actual size?
