Product Description

An authentic old salty small boat bow light that we have converted into a nautical table lamp. This old galvanized metal and brass anchor lantern produced in the 1st quarter of the 20th century was manufactured by "PERKO- PERKINS MARINE LAMP & HDWR. CORP, BROOKLYN N.Y. U.S.A." as embossed on the oval tag on the back of the fixture. 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 thick glass Fresnel lens is divided in the center with a ruby red (port) and ocean blue (starboard) Fresnel lens. This old lantern survives with lot's of seafaring character. The old galvanized metal lamp retains a worn patina from years of salt water spray and of course some body rust and losses as expected from years of use. Still a great old table lamp that will be a conversation piece.

Lampshades are sold separately. Shown here with our 12 inch brussels creme fabric lamp shade (see below.)
