Hello fellow collectors!


I just finished restoring a couple vintage Federal model "FS2" lights i recently acquired. i would date these around the early 1940's. i polished the rings and powder coated the housings. these were definitely a unique find for my collection.

thanks for looking!
 
Eric,


Nice restoration as usual! Would those actually be from the 40's being 12 volts? Thanks for sharing!!!
 
I almost bid on those!


Federal Electric 1940s


Federal Enterprises late 40s - 1955 or so.

I was eyeing those up as well, glad you got them and cleaned them up.

Correct.


Federal Electric until 1947-48


Federal Enterprises until 1955-56


Federal Sign & Signal until 1975
 
I believe these were actually made by Julian McDermott Corp. I have the same set with a McDermott tag on it and the chrome ring and red lense match my Par 46 McDeromtt can lights exactly.
