*****LOCAL PICK UP ONLY ON THIS ITEM****
This Fresnel lighthouse lens is a rare find, and it is unlikely you will find another one like it for sale! This is a single panel Fresnel lighthouse lens from an unknown Great Lakes lighthouse. It was made in 1933 by American Gas Accumulator Company in Elizabeth New Jersey. The Serial Number is #501. The glass was supplied by supplied by BBT – France.
This antiques maritime item measures just over 36 inches tall and about 21 inches wide. The brass housing and the glass weigh just over 140 pounds. This Fresnel lighthouse lens is being sold in as found condition and is not considered to be in mint condition. Some of the glass prisms have notable chips and other damage. All of the prisms are glass and none are made of the replacement acrylic material used in modern time to restore the prisms. It is clear that some of the white compound normally found to support the glass position in the brass frame has been replaced with some sort of clear silicone caulk. I was told the center glass is not original to the lens, but may have been installed to make a better display at some point.
This Fresnel lighthouse lens is a very historical piece and I will not ship, pack, or crate it. We ask that the new owner pick up and transport from our Pauline, South Carolina warehouse. If you choose to hire a professional moving company, you accept full responsibility of the mover you select.

Click on the photo for additional views of this 4 blade antique brass ship propeller.
A 4 blade antique brass ship propeller is always a great find, especially if it is in brass. This piece is solid brass and measures 24 inches in total diameter. And it measures 12 inches from the center of the hub to the edges of the blades. The hub is 3 inches in diameter, and 4 inches from front to back. This is a vintage brass propeller, pulled from a real ship. Both sides are photographed. This authentic brass ship propeller weighs just under 37 pounds.
Simply speaking, a maritime propeller is made up of sections of helicoidal surfaces which act together ‘screwing’ through the water (hence the common reference to marine propellers as “screws”). Three, four, or five blades are most common in marine propellers, although designs which are intended to operate at reduced noise will have more blades. The blades are attached to a boss, or hub, which should be as small as the needs of strength allow – with fixed-pitch propellers the blades and boss are usually a single casting.
We have a few other ship propellers in stock – just scroll up or down to view them! Placing an order is easy. You can call us directly at 574-870-1571, or send us an email via the “Contact Us” button and we will get right back to you.
