The marking on the cage of this vintage Samsin brass ship light says “SAMSIN”. Samsin is a Korean electronics company that specializes in marine equipment.
From the top of the mount plate to the bottom of the cage, this vintage salvaged brass ship light measures about 9 1/2 inches long. It will extend out from the wall by about 6 1/2 inches. The mount plate measures 3 5/8 inches in diameter with four large mount holes. This light weighs nearly 5 1/2 pounds.
We have re-wired this brass ship light, including a ground wire, with all new UL Listed parts that holds a normal 75 watt house bulb and up to 250 volts. The cage and globe unscrew from the main housing to access the bulb holder.
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.
