These are the classic copper navigation oil lamps required on all vessels that are underway (moving) at night.  The Left side of a vessel is called the "Port" side and requires a Red light while the Right side is called the "Starboard" side and requires a Green light.   Thus when passing another vessel one can quickly tell which side one is looking at and the general direction it is traveling by the color of the light that can be seen.

 

Our Solid Copper Red and Green  lamps are hand machined heavy gauge pure copper with a heavy glass "Fresnel" style lenses that magnify the light from the oil lamp inside to be visible for about 20 nautical miles. 

 

Lamps such as these were used on sailing ships for hundreds of years and are still in use today on sailing ships and sailboats worldwide.
