Solid Brass Cabin
Solid heavy brass high
quality cabin lantern. Styled after brass lanterns used
aboard the late era passenger sailing ships and steam ships.
Such lanterns would generally be mounted on a wall
(bulkhead) to prevent them from falling off a table and
causing a fire. The brass side braces add strength and
protect the glass from breakage.
Imagine quiet warm nights
aboard a large sailing vessel in the passage from England to
New York with a couple of these lamps burning in your cabin.
The only sound is the waves gently slapping the sides of the
hull and the occasional rustle of the wind in the giant
canvas sails and the stars overhead like a blanket.
Such nostalgia is not easily available in our modern world
and that is what these lanterns are all about.
