Solid Brass Norwegian Style Anchor Lantern

 

A very different shaped and style anchor lamp used by Norsemen on Viking sailing ships and fishing boats for many hundreds of years.  Our Norwegian anchor lamp is a high quality hand machined piece in a very fine alloy of heavy-gauge brass. The Fresnel style lens is made to magnify the oil lamp light  to be visible for 10 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 many hours before refilling, maybe.


Approx. 11.5 inches tall, with the bail (handle) down.
