Product Description

•••••

This 1960’s vintage solid brass anchor lantern has been re-purposed into a nautical table lamp. The glass that protects the burner and font 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. Brass wire guards fastened on with copper rivets protect the lens from potential breakage.

The lamp lighting choices toggles 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. A dimmer can also be added to adjust the light intensity for soft ambient light. The interior bulb is reached through the hinged lid of the fixture. Measures 4 1/2 inches in diameter at base and stands 18" tall to the top of the lamp shade.

This anchor lantern has a few surface blemishes and a slight dullness from decades of use. The Fresnel lens survives free of cracks, but has one small chip on the lens.  A nice old nautical boat lantern now re-purposed to light up any room in your coastal home!
