A pair of Trippe Safety Lights, marked SPEEDLIGHT on the lens. The inside emblem does not have a car name on it, thus this after market 1930s – 1940s accessory could be mounted on any appropriate vehicle with the proper arm mounts. This pair was on my 1929 Model A Ford Roadster when I purchased it, but I felt they just did not look proper. Mounted on the front bumper brackets coming from the frame, the lamps were never wired into the car’s electrical system. Depth of the lamps is about 4 3/4 inches, and diameter about 8 1/2 inches.

Found on larger cars usually such as Packards, Auburn; LaSalle, or Pierce-Arrow, these lamps would make a nice addition to most any antique automobile.

and, the last two images show how they were mounted on my Model A Ford when I purchased it.
