Authentic, American manufactured early 20th century galvanized metal anchor lantern that we've repurposed into functional nautical table lamp. Originally a kerosene burning lantern, this old seafaring marine fixture now makes a wonderful table lamp with lots of nautical appeal. Brass top cap above "Christmas tree" style smoke vents. The lamp metal body retains an old pewter-grey surface, with traces of old weathered red paint. The 360 degree glass Fresnel lens survives in good condition, with only a few minor rim chips on the light purple colored glass lens. Worn metal lens guards and two hoisting rings at bottom. Open at the bottom to access the interior light socket.
The lamp lighting choices toggle between the interior light and the lamp light via the upper light switch. Measures 20 inches tall to the top of the shade (as shown) and 5 ½ inch diameter at base. A wonderful authentic nautical lantern with lots of maritime charm, re purposed for today’s nautical home.
Lamp shades are sold separately. Shown here with our 12 inch off-white linen lamp shade.
