This Small Vintage Brass Post Light measures about 9.75 inches tall and 5 inches wide. The weight of the light is just over 5.5 pounds. The base flange of this light measures 5 1/4 inches in diameter and has four mounting holes.
This light would make a great antique desk lamp, night stand or entry way light. This light can also be hard wired to be used outdoors or in. The fresnel glass has a small chip that is hardly noticeable. The brass has gained a patina over the years and in certain areas, has corroded slightly.
This vintage has been completely rewired with modern UL-Listed wiring. The new bulb socket takes a common screw in house bulb of 100 watts or less and 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 simply undo the latch and flip 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.
