Can someone point me in the right direction on my search for 2 lights for a Texaco sign on an 18ft banjo pole. I see several different examples when doing a Google image search. My pole is 1940 and my sign is 1959. I like the look of the green porcelain fixtures. I see many different sizes, shapes and colors. I'm not a real purist and would consider a repop set as long as they look correct hanging 18 feet up. I'm also attaching the original instructions a member gave me that shows the distance they are to be mounted away from the sign. What is the proper name for these lights when I'm doing a for sale search.
Thanks

The ones in the drawing are cast aluminum ,I have taken down many poles and the aluminum ones have mostly been on arm poles not the banjo or lollipop style, they usually used the green porcelain ones.However, back in the day every different combination was used. To search for them some people call them angled porcelain lights.
