Unrestored USS Forrestal Bulkhead Light
1 In Stock
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 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 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.
