From the top of the wall mount to the bottom of the cage this vintage aluminum nautical bulkhead light measure 10 inches long. The wall mount is 4 inches in diameter and has two mount feet which will require a mounting space about 5 1/2 inches wide. This light will extend out from the wall by 7 3/8 inches. Weighs almost 4 pounds.
We have rewired this aluminum bulkhead light to include a ground wire. We have also installed a new Westinghouse UL-Listed bulb fixture that is rated for up to 250 volts. The new bulb holder takes a common screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less.
This vintage light should not be put directly on the coast or in contact with salt water, as the aluminum will corrode when exposed to salt.
You will be shipped the vintage aluminum nautical bulkhead light shown in the photos.
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.
Pair these with an aluminum porthole mirror!:
