Solid Brass Anchor Lantern

 

The classic anchor lamp used on sailing ships for hundreds of years.  Our Solid Brass Anchor lamp is hand machined in heavy-gauge brass with copper trim. The Fresnel style lens is made to magnify the oil lamp light  to be visible for 20 nautical miles.

 

The anchor lamp is named for it's use.  A 360o white light is required to be displayed at the highest point

( the tallest mast) on all vessels at anchor or under way at night.  These oil burning lanterns were made to be lit and hoisted to the top of the mast with one rope tied to the handle and 2 ropes through the brass guides to keep it from swaying as the ship rolled with the sea.  Can burn for 7 up to hours before refilling, maybe.


Approx. 13 inches tall, with the bail (handle) down.

Easily converted to electric light with the kit shown at the left for safer and easier use as a light.
