Authentic, American made mid-20th century galvanized metal anchor lantern manufactured by PERKINS/PERKO that we've re-purposed into functioning table lamp. The oval brass manufacturers makers plate is located on the front states: "PERKINS LAMP AND HARDWARE CO., FLORIDA" and "PERKO" in the center. A wonderful old American-made seafaring marine anchor lantern that survives with lots of nautical appeal. Thick glass Fresnel lens intensifies the distance of the light similar to a lighthouse lens. Originally a kerosene burning lantern, this old fixture had been repurposed into a nautical table lamp. Retains an old pewter grey surface. Survives completely intact but with chips and cracks of the Frenel lens. The fractures are only visible from the back side. The lantern is open at the bottom to access the interior light.
The lamp lighting choices toggle between the interior light and the lamp light via the upper light switch. You can use either the upper room light, the interior lantern light or both as desired.
Measures 27 inches tall to the top of the shade (as shown) and 7 inches in diameter. A great old nautical fixture with lots of maritime charm, re-purposed for today’s nautical home.
Lamp shades and decorative nautical lamp finials are sold separately. See our current selection in our related itemds below. Shown here with an 16 inch black parchment lamp shade.
