Skipjack Nautical Wares specializes in vintage and antique ship's lanterns and lights. We offer a wide variety of marine lighting, manufactured throughout the 19th and 20th century for small craft to big ships by the best known American and foreign makers. These manufacturers include Perkins, Perko, National Marine Lamp Co., Kilborn-Sauer, Wilcox Crittenden, George Carpenter, Robert Findlay, Triplex, A. Ward Hendrickson, Peter Gray, Metorite, Robert Findlay Mfg., Russell Stoll Makers, Lovell, Den Haan, Tung Woo and Sento of Japan, Sea Horse, J.H. Peters & Bey and other historic makers. You will also find a selection of new marine lamps from makers like Den Haan and Weems & Plath.
Our policy at Skipjack is to leave these old seafaring lights in their parent condition, but typical restoration includes minor surfacing cleaning and hand waxing to preserve and enhance the old weathered surface. Lanterns that survive with original burners are left as such. Electrified lights are re-wired and we replace the old sockets with new for years of problem-free use. We also re-purpose and convert old ship lights in to nautical table lamps- a wonderful use for retired boat lights as once again functional lighting for nautical rooms, beach and coastal homes. See our section: Table Lamps and Lighting.
