Hello, 

I'm new here so I'm not sure if this counts but here goes

I have been searching for information on this lamp post head for years. I have always loved it and I want to know more about it like who made it and what year it's from. Here's what I know about it:

It came with our house when we moved in in 2001

It's at least 30 years old, can't be terribly old because the globe is actually plastic or acryllic (not glass). 

It used to be white, we painted it black around 2010 to match our new railings. 

The eagle statue may or may not be original. It has always been brass, when we painted the head it did not get painted. 

It had a UL sticker inside the bottom mounting area but it was sadly painted over.

I have never seen another one like it.  

If anyone out there has ever seen one of these or knows anything about this head, any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This is similar to a style of New York City luminaire used on posts in some parks. It is called the Battery Park City luminaire and was designed for the 1980's development of that name in lower Manhattan. It is not exactly the same so was probably made by a competing company. The originals do not have an eagle final. Yours may also be overall smaller in dimension.

Awesome, I looked up those heads and they are very similar, they're very similar except the globes are frosted and the design on the top metal rim under the lid is different, and as you mentioned they don't have the iconic eagle statue. Thank you for the info.

These two had no description provided, but look very similar from my vantage point.

Then I found this one..
