Here is a most impressive set of two matched double stack marine navigation lights. Each light stands about 25 inches tall and measures about 14 inches wide. Each light weighs about 30 pounds, so the three piece set total weight is around 60 pounds.
These marine navigation lights are made of copper and have some brass trim. Each light has two fresnel globes, and they are made of 3/4 inch thick glass. The globes are all in good condition with just some edge flaking – no cracks or holes (shown in photos). The globes on the left hand light show a little more weathering than the other, but this is not a big issue. The top of the left hand light is dented in. This can be beat out, but I will leave that up to the new owners.
The copper housing of each light will have some dents and dings as they are real lights recovered from a salvage yard operation. The port and starboard lights have clear fresnel glass with a red and green colored insert behind the clear glass. When you install bulbs and turn on the power, the red and green will be quite noticeable.
We have re-wired all three lights with all new UL-Listed wiring and two new bulb holders in each light. The new electrical parts are rated to work with any voltage under 250 volts. The bulb holders uses a normal screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
