    This is a traffic light manufactured by the Marbelite Co., circa 1950. I put it together from different sources. One head was spotted by my daughter at a yard sale in Hightstown, NJ. The unique cutaway visors are very accurate reproductions made by a collector from Colorado. The Marbelite cast aluminum spacer brackets (especially the solid bottom piece) are somewhat scarce parts that I specifically wanted, and took a few years of patient searching to find.

    I first hung the light from the basement ceiling before reversing the brackets and mounting it to an aluminum post that has been cut down to 4.5'.

    Paint is Sherwin-Williams dark olive green in satin finish.

      If you should run across a bottom 4 hole plate for a mid to late 1920's ESSCO T-235 I would pay handsomely. You could be the only guy on the block with 3 testicles. Because I would give my left testi for a bottom plate.
