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 long ago updated to electric. We've modified it even more, replaced all of the old fixture and wiring and re-purposed it into a nautical table lamp. Retains an old black-painted surface and a polished brass chimney cap. Survives with expected surface dents and a few cracks in the glass lens, but the lens is all intact and not effected by the cracks. The lantern is open at the bottom to access the lamp interior. This lamp features 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 24 1/2 inches tall to the top of the shade (as shown) and 8 inches in diameter. A great old nautical fixture with lot’s of maritime charm, re-purposed for today’s nautical home.
Lamp shades and decorative nautical lamp finials are sold separately.
