You are looking at a Salvaged Solid Aluminum Floodlight on Stand. This is a beautiful nautical floodlight. A floodlight like this would have been used on the masthead of the ship, or perhaps on a pedestal, to communicate to other vessels via signals. These lights were used during the day and at night. Signal lamps were invented in the late 19th century by Arthur Cyril Webb Aldis. They are often referred to as Aldis lamps or Morse lamps.
This light could be hung directly from the ceiling or just leave it sitting upright. In the second photo, you will see it hanging from the photo. You will see that there are 4 mounting holes on the floodlight.
There are four dogs that secure the front lid onto the light fixture. There is a handle on top of the light or the bottom of the light that allows you to change the direction of the light – provided the two handles on the outside are loosened to allow this.
This light is very versatile so you get to decide which way you would like to place the light.
Glass Diameter: 10.5″

The light has been re-wired with all new UL-Listed parts, including a ground wire, that is rated for any voltage under 250 volts. The bulb holder takes a standard medium base LED or Edison bulb.
