These glass taxi "toppers" are quite rare, and we have only seen a few in our many years. This one is a generic taxi light, with etched and frosted letters. We have restored the paint, added a lacquered wood base, and interior lighting. Needless to say, it looks fantastic, and displays beautifully.
