This is a Brass Perko Caged Lantern – Rewired with Wall Outlet. Perko is a well known American lantern manufacturer in the 1900’s. This particular item was manufactured in Brooklyn, New York. It was missing the original burner components when the collector purchased it, so he had it rewired with a wall outlet so that it could be easily placed in different locations for illumination purposes. It’s in good shape – with a few minor chips and marks. There is a small chip in the glass which is seen in the photos.
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!
