Hi John,

My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. You mention 5 photos, however there is only one photo of a top to bottom view of the light posts attached here. At your convenience, no rush, please send the additional photos. It does not cost extra to add more pictures. In the meantime, in the image, these appear to be silver painted which is unusual for bronze, which has value in the patina, or aging on the surface over time (and should never be cleaned). Please let me know if what I am seeing in the image is correct. Also, are there any maker names, marks or initials located on them?
