Product Description

Early 20th century small boat anchor lantern made of galvanized steel with brass chimney cap. Embossed on the oval brass tag: "TRIPLEX TRADE MARK, LENSE PAT'D DEC.20 1910, OTHERS PAT.D PENDING".  A great old light measuring 9 inches tall exclusive of the bail handle and 4 1/2" in diameter. This early 20th century lantern survives retaining an old, dark green verdigris metal patina. The original brass twist-in style base survives but the burner font is long gone and the lantern has been electrified.  We replaced the old lamp cord with new and comes with an on/off switch on the cord.  The "TRIPLEX" Fresnel lens is flawless and the lantern itself survives in excellent structural condition.
