This vintage hurricane lamp is constructed of solid brass and retains a weathered, black painted and bronzed finish created by years of seafaring use. The thick red glass is a Fresnel lens similar to the type used in lighthouses worldwide.This lens amplifies the light from the bulb so that the light appears much brighter than its actual source. 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. The interior bulb is reached through the open bottom of the fixture. The olds wing handle is wrapped in grass. Measures 7 inches in diameter not including the wire guards, and stands 26 1/2" tall to the top of the lamp shade. Weighs approx. 6 pounds.
We recommend using LED light bulbs for the interior light. LED bulbs creates superior lighting and are not a source of heat, so the fixture will not become hot to the touch. LED bulbs are also energy saving and lasts significantly longer than conventional or fluorescent bulbs!
Lamp shades and finials are sold separately...see related products below.
