Default Yellow dog? Or not?

I was wondering if I've found my first yellow dog. It's labeled " The Taylor & Boggie Fdy. Co. Cleveland Ohio" on one side and "Furnace Lamp No. 1" on the other.

Anybody have an idea what the cap would have looked like?

It is just a lamp. A yellow dog is a derrick lantern with two spouts which look like the yellow eyes of a dog at a distance. The cap was probably just a stamped metal lid.
