This is a Post Mounted Red Fresnel 12 Inch Tranberg Brass Light. It is a nautical navigation port side light with a red Fresnel lens. These lights are usually mounted on the port (left) side of the boat when navigating the boat at night time.
Navigation lights alert other vessels of your positioning. The red indicates portside of a boat. The green light indicates starboard side. The white is seen from all angles typically mounted on the stern.
In 1901 Olof Tranber founds Tranberg in Stavanger, Norway. By 1901 they had crested the worlds first electrical navigation light. They produced marine equipment for over 90 years until 2006 when they were acquired by German company R.Stahl.
This Tranberg post light is made of solid brass. It stands just slightly over 12 inches tall. It measures 6 1/2 inches wide. The red Fresnel lens is in excellent condition with minor chips or scratches due to being salvaged off a decommissioned vessel. The base of the light is 5 inches in diameter, with 3 mount holes. We have installed a copper cap in the old conduit hole on the Tranberg junction box. This post light weighs 11 pounds.
There is a small bolt in the top that at some point was installed to fill a small hole.
This light has been rewired with UL-listed wiring and bulb socket. This light takes a medium base bulb of 75 watts or less. To access the bulb area, you simply undo the latch on the top and flip open the top. The wiring exits the bottom of the light from the brass post.
