Astra carbide headlamp?

Does anyone recognise the manufacturer logo or recognise the light?? 


Someone suggested Dorris motor company bought Astra in 1922 but only made 9 or 10 cars? Other than that I’m stumped. 


Thank you in advance.

I think it may not be automotive. Carbide lamps were used in mining and other operations. If the mount shown is original to the lamp, I would guess it may have been mounted stationary in a tunnel or other dark area.
