    Still no positive ID on this lamp yet... Local News Paper will be doing a story next week... One of the old timers here thinks it may be off one of the old Civil War Iron Clads..... made in Ciro Illinois.... supposedly there were many Danish folks working on them and that may be the marking origination....

    VEJLE H could be a reference to Vejhle, which is a sea port in Holland.

    Sorry, I misspoke, Vejle is in Denmark.
