Default Dome lights

I picked up these two dome lights with a box of parts last year at a swap meet. Just getting around to checking them out. They’re both the same size, but I think the one on the top maybe Model A. Just looking for some help.

Thanks

Similar to one I picked up on ebay a while back for cheap. Mine has a flatter face, which may explain its cracked edges. The switch was also seized, which freed up nicely with WD-40. And it needs replating...I'll get to it someday.

The lower one in your pic mounts differently, possibly not for Model A.

This is an original dome light for a Deluxe Coupe.

They also look very similar to the dome light in a standard Fordor although I don't think the Fordor has as much detail on the bezel.

Looks like what I have. Socket back is different, though. No metal on mine.

Picked this up at a junk yard that was closing, paid $10.
But the wood frame does not fit my '31 SW town sedan, but it did come with the bezel and glass lens that fit my original light in it now.
