2 RR Car Candle Lamps. Vintage. Great Western Railroad

A great pair of antique railroad wall lights. Marked GWR, these brass candle lamps likely hung on the walls of some passenger car back in the early days of the Great Western Railroad. These candle lamps made perfect night lights for passengers on a train. trying to sleep as steel wheels grab and pull over the iron tracks.... DIMENSIONS: lamps measure 14 inches tall and a little under 3 wide. The glass chimneys are in excellent condition. Slight bumps or bruises from wear and tear, but they still look great. Candles rest on top of a spring, which can probably be adjusted, but Im not sure how. Just like they did a hundred years ago, these old railroad sconces burn with a soothing glow.
