They were fastened to the wall and the circular part of the bracket held the oil reservoir and burner, then the shade was attached and finally the coiled bracket was use to keep the chimney from falling as the Caboose rocked back and forth going down the tracks. They don't use the Caboose on trains any more but this is a piece of history that has been preserved. This lamp is all original (I don't know about the chimney it may be a reproduction). It looks like it may have been painted at some time in the past, but it is excellent share with ALL the parts. If you are a Rail Road collector you need this in your collection!
