Electric Mule Lamp

Description (Brief)
This lamp is a "mule" lamp, manufactured by the Edison Storage Battery Company around 1920. The lamp would have been attached to a mule's harness to light the way for the driver of the mule in the mines. The battery and lamp are attached, and both are larger than that of cap lamps.
