Here we have a genuine Perko brass nautical post light. The light measures about 12 inches tall and about 7 inches wide. The weight of the light is 12 pounds. This genuine brass nautical post light is mounted on a threaded brass pipe. It also has a very thick plastic Fresnel lens with very minor wear.
This genuine brass post 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 includes a wall-outlet plug and thumb switch that comes out of the bottom of the light. To access the bulb holder you loosen the win-nut closure and open the top.
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.
