From the top of the wall mount to the bottom of the cage this Oceanic Rare brass bulkhead light measures 11 inches long. The junction box is 5 inches in diameter and has two mount holes. The light will extend out from the wall by 7 1/2 inches. What makes this light rare is the housing, cage and the lip above the cage are marked with Oceanic. This light weighs 9.1 pounds.
You can use this light inside or out – it will never rust! We have rewired the light, including a ground wire. We have also installed new Westinghouse UL-Listed bulb fixtures that are rated for up to 250 volts. The new bulb holder takes a medium base bulb of 75 watts or less.
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.
