Revere Urban Lites
The fixure on the bottom is the same as the one [url=http://www.galleryoflights.org/mb/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=17784]pictured here[/url] but it's mate sat in storage for a few years before I managed to take it apart and clean it up. Both were bought at the same time from the same seller and I was told that they were from Chatham, ON. One still had a 175w lamp in it so I guess that's what both used.

Unfortunately the top one is in a lot of rougher shape than the bottom one. The glass is cracked and seems to have been chipped in a few places and the reflector is a bit more dented compared to the other one. 

On both lights I took them apart and gave them a good scrub. I also replaced the perished felt gasketing with a new gasket and the rusty slipfitter hardware with like stainless steel replacements.

They're quite interesting lights, like a cross between a clamshell and a gumball. They were designed for smaller side streets and used 100w to 250w mercury lamps. [url=https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-169681]A remote ballast[/url] was used with these lights.
