Hi, new guy here. I came across these blue porcelain lights from a picker who stated that they were the lights that highlighted a service station sign. I fully restored them by replacing the wiring as well as removing the tarnish from the fixture and glass globe rings. They are in excellent condition. They have a few places where the porcelain as worn through but I treated those area's with chemical rust treatment that turns the rust to a black. The bulb receptacles are white porcelain and are in excellent condition. Any information on these would be greatly appreciated.

Glass Globes have a circle with a K
Mounting elbow marked, "Revere Elec.MFG CO
Two piece glass porcelain bulb sockets with copper bulb sleeve and brass contact

Many more photo's of restoration https://flic.kr/s/aHsmuGcGGB
