I Think it is a LM Spherolite

There are no markings on the head at all except on the glass which has a sun and the Word Holophane in the glass. I have the pole and base as well from a Powerlite that would fit the head.

Yep, I think this is indeed LM. Are their any marks on or near the slipfitter?

Hi: The fixture is 23 inches tall from top to bottom and about 13 inches in diameter in the glass Here is a picture of the inside. The socket is bigger than the standard incandescent socket.

No markings on it anywhere I could find except the glass has the Holophane with a
Sun on the outside of the glass It also says 'House Side ' under the Holophane.

The slipfitter looks like the one on my GE Form 109 and while my GE Form 79 NEMA looks different, it also bears no markings and has the same refractor pattern as yours. My Spherolite has the "LM" triangle logo and a different lens pattern, so I'm inclined to say yours is a GE.

I'm lampin...

Thanks for your input. I'm not sure either way, but I was impressed that the glass is in excellent shape. I was thinking that it was newer than the OLM fixture that I have in the album. That fixture has a threaded connection rather than the bolt on slip fitting and the arm is quite heavier.

Yours looks to have bullet holes in the reflector too.

Which one is older? This lite or the OLM Spire head fixture?. I'm thinking the Spire Head...This one is still hanging in the rafters...

When I say 'this lite' I mean the the LM Spherolite, which could also be a GE form 109 as they are no markings on the fixture at all except the glass which has the Holophane symbol as seen in above comments...

Definitely the spire head. The one above at the top of the page looks like a late 50s or early 60s while the spire head could be 1940s.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
