This is a fabulous authentic brass nautical piling or post light. The light measures about 11 1/2 inches tall and about 9 1/2 inches wide. The weight of the light is 18 pounds. This authentic original brass nautical piling light has a mount base with three mount holes that are 4 3/4 inches on square.
Note: The light has a very thick Fresnel lens with two slight cracks in the glass; yet is still water tight.
This original piling light has been completely rewired with modern UL-Listed wiring. The new bulb socket was made by Westinghouse Electric and it takes a common screw in house bulb of 100 watts or less. The new UL-Listed wiring and bulb socket are all rated to work with any electrical voltage under 250 volts. This light also has a pre-installed new ground wire. To access the bulb holder you loosen the three thumb screws on top.
This beautiful vintage post light looks great mounted on a dock or can be hung from a ceiling as well. There are many options for this old beauty to keep providing light for many years to come.
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.
