Photo Alamo Iron Works Yellow Dog

The Alamo Iron works Derrick Lamp or Yellow Dog I acquired a few years back,without the original lid has stirred some interest,as most people thought it may be an old reproduction, or a company giveaway.Not so as the Alamo Iron Works still exist and I talked to one of the owners and he said they where big sellers in their old catalogs.He stated that they have one in bronze in their offices and if I was willing I could pack mine up they would be glad to except it.I described mine to him and he said you do have the real thing and they had never made any reproductions. Mine was rusted and the bail looked as it had been run over by a truck,also had a small pinhole at the base of one of the spouts.A Texas gentelman that works in the oil fields and collects Yellow Dogs said he had never seen one.I have yet to talk to anyone who has except the owner of Alamo Iron Works. Bob

Some time a couple years ago, I remember seeing a picture of a Yellow Dog made in Texas. It may have been an Alamo, but I am not 100% sure.
