A highest quality PERKO "not under command" brass lantern that was converted years ago into a table lamp. We removed the old light fixture and wires and replaced it with new, three-way light with upper switch that toggles between the table lamp light and the lower interior lantern light. Features thick ruby-red glass Fresnel lens that is protected by 6 brass guards. The PERKO label is fixed to both the front and the back of the lantern base (see picture). The lantern stands 33 ˝ inches tall to the top of the lamp shade, exclusive of the finial and the actual lantern stands 23 inches tall, 10 ˝ inches in diameter. There is a partial lens crack located on the back side of the lamp, but is not in a noticeable place and does not effect the lens nor the light. A great old navigational light retaining a wonderful soft brass patina- once again a functional lighting source that will add authenticity to your nautical interior.
