This salvaged vintage brass red ship’s post light stands a little over 9 inches tall. The red Fresnel lens measures 5 inches wide and 5 inches tall. The brass base flange that this light sits on measures 3 1/4 inches in diameter. This light weighs just about 10 pounds.
The original red glass Fresnel lens is in excellent condition, it has no chipping.
This light has been rewired with new UL-listed wiring, including a ground wire. The new wiring and socket are rated to work with any voltage under 250 volts. This light takes a medium base bulb of 75 watts or less. To access the bulb, you spin off the three nuts and lift off the lid.
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.
