You are looking at the Vintage Clear Glass With Red Insert Running Light that was made in Japan by Nippon Sento Co. Ltd. Nippon Sento Co. Ltd. is a marine supplier that has been providing lighting equipment for ships and airports since 1936. This light was manufactured in 1975.
You can choose to remove or insert the red piece at any time. The fresnel lens is in great condition and also the brass. On the top of the light you will find a plaque that has some words such as: Flashing light red, the Manufacturing number and the Manufacturing date, and also the company name as well. We wired it out the bottom so that you could use this as a ceiling light, hanging light or even a desk light.
A great light to add to your nautical collection!
