I have two lamps from my grandparents house. I can not seem to identify them. One is a finger lamp and the other a tall table lamp. The burner has the word EAGLE on the top and the thumb dial says P&A MFG CO WATERBURY, CONN MADE IN V.T. I have attached pictures. My family lives in Pittsburgh and most likely bought it here or on the way here from Ellis Island.

I am not sure if you know anything about a lantern. But this is from the PA Railroad. It was my great grandpa's and he worked on the railroad during the turn of the century. The top says DRESSEL ARLINGTON, N.J. and the bottom says PAT NO. 2157081 the glass and the top have the railroad markings.

Could you help me identify them?
