Yellow dogs are derrick lamps. Look like a cast iron tea pot with two spouts. Would burn oil to light the old oilfield equipment. When both spouts were burning, it would look like a big dogs eyes glowing in the distance.

I saw a genuine article that the guy was asking 300, and would not budge.

Bought myself a very nice repro from John Burns for half of that.

Check over on the Oil Field Engine Society page, there was some discussion over there.

Here a sort of "yellow dog" from the 18th century. It's Flemish circa 1750.

As far as I can tell, all the ones I have seen with engine company names on them were repro's, and a few of the plain ones were original. You can get the repros in different metals, too. I personally got a nice Bessemer repro, what would be the best black paint to use?

John, that is one nice "Yellow Dog" in brass. Even the Flemish knew a good light fixture when they saw one. Beside it is prettier than our cast iron ones. Dick in the Spring like Finger Lake region of NYS.

Yeah Rick, I have to agree...little over my budget for an "accessory". I'm actually curious who is making them. Who's the manufacturer/distributor or someone to contact?

Well i would like to find one now...not new...must be old. are they common? expensive? If you should have one you want to get rid of I would be more than willing to take it offa your hands.

There's an add in GEM for repo yellow dogs. They are cast in brass and iron. Brass is the highest priced.
