    I have several of these in clear, green, and red. The colors make me think they're for a boat or carriage lantern. Something to do with traffic.

    They're 1-1/2" across.

    The green glass is almost blue which I've seen before and makes me wonder if it's because a yellow flame was the light behind it and the 2 combined appeared green.

    Thanks!

    Also Boat lamps: Port; Starboard; and Running lamps. Let's not forget the early automobile lamps.
