Solid Brass Cargo Lantern
The classic cargo lantern
in solid brass with brass trim. This is the grandfather of
all cargo lanterns in size and composition. Constructed of
heavy gage solid brass with glass sides and heavy brass
Has classic top and bottom bail for hanging stability.
Lanterns such as these both in brass as well as copper were used extensively aboard sailing
vessels from the late 1700's until well into the 19th
Century. Some can even be found
aboard sailing ships to this day. When all else fails these
oil lanterns will light areas below decks very brightly.
This lantern will always
be a hit on a patio, deck or aboard your boat or
yacht. A romantic table light casting a nostalgic glow in
any setting at home or on the water.
Shown here with electric
light kit installed.
