Default Briggs Factory Made Lamp

I was lucky enough to get this a few days ago from a friend who worked at Briggs & Stratton in Milwaukee. She said the company used to make these and give them as employee gifts. It was in her office at Briggs until she retired and she brought it home and gave it to me.
Its a real engine in every way except no piston or rod so a lamp attachment could be screwed into the spark plug hole. Even the electric starter is complete!!! I wonder how rare these are?
It will have a special place in my house.

I know there are some being made around here and sold at the local antique flea market.They just use any old parts they can find.They look nothing like that clean and nice.

Rather seen it done to an aluminum Briggs then a vintage fan like some of these ass helmets have been doing on Ebay the past few years with brass era antiques
