Solid Brass Lighthouse Oil Lantern

 

The classic lighthouse lantern used

in lighthouses all over the world to light the way, to guard harbors, and warn of dangerous rocks for ships at night.

 

Our Lighthouse Lantern is made of hand machined medium gauge brass with five (5) heavy glass "Fresnel" style lenses that magnify the light from the oil lamp inside so that it is visible for many nautical miles.

 

This lantern could have been lit and placed inside of the large rotating "Fresnel" lens in some lighthouses that then became the beacon light for the lighthouse. These lanterns were made to burn for up to six hours at a time. Most lighthouses kept a few on hand in case more were needed.

 

Great lantern for deck or patio.

A note of interest concerning lighthouses and the hand made "Fresnel" lenses. Each lighthouse lens was hand made and would give a signal in code as it rotated.  Each rotating signal was different and sailors know the code of every light and recognize that lighthouse by it's code.
