Hi L.E.Brasher, The Luck-E-Lite No.25 was made by Embury lanterns from 1937 to 1952. It is a truck lantern that would be mounted on the side of trucks or construction equipment as running lights before they had running light of today. On the back side they had a bracket plate on top and a fold down bracket to screw on to the side of what ever truck or equipment to be used on. There are a few different paint colors they used. A green-gray color were most common and some were red and orange. I would not try to take the top part of the chimney apart. I used red devil lye to strip the paint off. But there are other way to strip a lantern also. You also have the correct globe for it. It takes a 1/4" round grey felt wick for the wick burner. Although I have some that take a 5/8" flat wick also. Steve
