I am also looking for the same set of lights. If you run across more than one set or a set that you don't want, please let me know.
Thanks,
Ted

Ok Ted, will do. Big swap meet up here in Barrie area in early June so I'm hoping something will eventually turn up.

Ok..so Burles Creek Auto flea market was a bust. No pole lights to be had. Anyone out there know where I can get a working set of banjo pole lights as pictured above?? Please let me know!

Some times you've gotta pony up when the right item comes up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/RED-PORCELAIN-AN...=item4aeb1b5243
Or be patient and wait till a better deal shows up. They arent all that easy to come by so that price on ebay isnt too crazy bad. seems like stuff you could find for 80 bucks a couple years ago costs 250.00 today. lol Make an offer to the guy....

Thanks for the lead Jim. I believe my 2 1/2 year search may be over as I now have a tentative agreement with the seller....and yes, I did pony up!

Appreciate your help.

What color were the original lights on the Texaco banjo poles and signs? I thought they were red, but a friend insists that they were green. Or did they use both.
Thanks,
Ted

All photos I've seen in colour have been red. The set I got were red as well.
Ted are you still looking? I know Jim T was looking as well.

There is a set on Ebay now. Shades are correct but poles are not but that would be easy to rectify. These ones are black and are the same shape as my red ones.
