unrestored Brass Bulkhead Light

This unrestored USS Forrestal 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).  It will extend out from the wall by about 7 inches. The two conduit holes on either side of the light have been fitted with copper caps.  The light weighs just over 10 pounds.

This unrestored bulkhead light has been 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 unrestored USS Forrestal 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.

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.
