This is a very nice, authentic red lens nautical piling post light. The light measures almost 9 1/4 inches tall and about 6 1/2 inches wide. It weighs just over 14 pounds and has an original mounting base with three mount legs. The light has a very thick red Fresnel lens with minor wear. This piling light contains a red 360 acrylic Fresnel lens.
Note: The original rubber gasket was worn and replaced with a rope gasket.
This red lens post light has been completely rewired with modern UL-Listed wiring, including the ground wire. The two original conduit holes in front were replaced with copper plugs and an exit hole has been drilled on the bottom for the new wiring. The new bulb socket was made by Westinghouse Electric and takes a common screw-in house bulb of 100 watts or less. The new UL-Listed wiring and bulb socket are rated to work with any electrical voltage under 250 volts. To access the bulb holder you loosen the four wing nuts.
