I found this old converted lamp, which I refurbished. I have asked around and I really do not know what it is.  My dad thinks it could maybe be one of the old stop construction lights or a light/lantern on a train.  I do not have a before picture. So to describe the old "before" lamp, it has been in an attic for a number of years, the wiring looked like it was from the 70s.  It has a pole coming out of the top and then a light bulb socket was at the top of the pole, plus a light bulb in the "lantern."  I redid the wiring, with the help of my husband, sprayed it, glued parts of the glass lantern back together, & removed unnecessarily parts.  Considering this was my first project & I had never done something like this before, I was proud of it.

What a great old lamp! It has such an air of history about it. You did a great job of repurposing it!
