LANTERN - Nautical - Port/Starboard Navagation - 9½" Brass - 110V -- Late
1 / 8
No Longer Needed
Refurbished Brass Port/Starboard Navigation Lantern. Lanterns of this type were usually mounted midships on a smaller vessel and lighted while underway at night. Based on the design, craftsmanship, and materials used , it appears a copy of a Perkins Marine Lamp & Hardware Corporation Lantern and built in the late 1900's. The quality is not up to the "PERKO" standards, but is is not a cheap reproduction. This lantern measures 9½" tall x 5½" wide x 5" deep and weighs 2½ pounds. It has both 3½" x 4" (green and red) dioptric (ribbed) glass lenses. Also, the lighting is 110 volt with an in-line switch and bulb. The lenses have some color lamination loss, two very slight stress cracks in the brass chimney, and the slide-in divider shade is missing. This Lantern does not appear to have seen any sea duty and is a very nice unique nautical item to display. Additional Nautical Items Available - Please Call Cliff @ 760-942-2025 For More Information.
