USS Forrestal Navy Bulkhead Light
1 In Stock
This USS Forrestal Navy bulkhead light is an original, unpolished cast brass treasure. Made by Russell & Stoll. From the top of the wall box mount to the bottom of the cage this light measures about 9 1/2 inches tall x 5 inches wide (not including the mount holes). When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 7 inches. The two conduit holes on the bottom of the light and the one conduit hole on one side have been fitted with copper caps. The light weighs almost 10 1/2 pounds.
This light has been totally rewired, including a ground wire, with all new UL-Listed parts rated for any voltage of 250 volts or less. The new bulb holder takes a normal screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less. A new hole was drilled in the center of the wall mount on the back for the wiring to exit.
This light is in original, as-found condition, paint and all. It will have some surface wear. The glass globe is in good shape and pretty clean. The cage is slightly bent.
The USS Forrestal had a very colorful and long history – just Google her name for an interesting biography. She was commissioned in 1955 and scrapped in December of 2015.
You will be shipped the USS Forrestal Navy bulkhead light shown in the photos.
