This is a 180 Degree Fresnel Lens Hanging Navigation Lantern, in great condition. There are no markings visible on the lantern because it has been painted black at some point in it’s life to maintain a pristine look despite potential rust beginning to show. Since this item wasn’t made of brass, and the owner of it is known to be a Great Lakes collector.
This item is being sold on consignment for a private collector from Cleveland. Every item has been well-preserved due to the owner’s deep love of nautical history. You’ll find some very interesting pieces in this collection – items that might not be found anywhere on the Internet!
