It’s tough to find anything about these in part due to the Van Brunt Brooklyn NY writing on them bringing up other unrelated search items. I wish I was able to tell how old they are but these are very old without a doubt. There is Van Brunt Brooklyn N. ” written on them both and then one has “3S” and the other has the numbers “1S. The design of these is in a league of their own compared to other “steampunk” lights on the market right now. The top metal unscrews and the solid thick glass also unscrews to get to the bulb. They are without a doubt explosion proof. Very heavy as well. Both light fixtures have a little packet of screws and rubber ring inside them, the rubber rings are still in great shape and the screws are too. There is dust on them but I’m leaving them as they are to preserve authenticity. If they are to be restored into decorative lights or preserved as they are the choice is yours.
