Okay, pre war car buffs… I need your help! I got these at a car boot sale yesterday, purely because they are nice looking, and if nothing else, they’d look good hanging on my garage wall. But I’d be interested to know what they are from. They are made by C. M. Hall Lamp Company of Detroit, and some preliminary online investigations suggest they date from around 1929. The lenses are flat and are marked 8 3/4 x 7 63/64, with a part number 12941. These kind of lenses were used in quite a number of cars… Ford Model A, Packards and even Rolls Royce but what I can’t figure is what are these particular ones are from, as the ornate chrome surrounds don’t seem to match anything I’ve looked at online. More pics after the jump…
