Any input on these porcelain lights as to era/value? The poles are new with electrical wiring. Looking to configure the light fixtures on a general 25’ ft pole to hang a large Esso sign from. The light fixtures are hard to find that tilt back towards the sign.

Poleman,
The diameter from inside to inside at the widest point is 16”.

OK being that big they would not have been used on a sign pole . the 8" and 10" diameter ones were used on sign pole . Those were most likely uesd on billboards

Poleman: do you think they would be too big to use on a 25’ pole with large double sided porcelain Esso sign? If so, I’ll shop for a 8 to 10” light. Tks.Sam
