Product Description

•••••

A handsome old brass anchor lantern manufactured during the early years of the last century. The twist-type Vaporite burner is engraved on the bottom "WARNING USE ONLY PARAFFIN KEROSENE." Stands 9 1/2 inches tall and 4 1/2 inches in diameter at base.

CONDITION: The lantern has multiple dents on the brass body and the Fresnel lens survives in good order with only a few small blemishes from years of maritime use. The brass burner has stress cracks in the body and is not functional. Retains a great old brass patina.
