This salvaged brass Tranberg ship post light is authentic and made of solid cast brass. The lens is in great shape, with no edge chips or cracks. This light measures a little over 12 inches tall and a little over 7 inches in diameter. The base of this light measures just under 5 inches in diameter and had 3 mount holes. This light weighs a littler over 15 1/2 pounds.
This light has been rewired with UL-listed wiring and bulb socket. This light takes a medium base bulb of 100 watts or less. To access the bulb area, you simply flip the closure latch and flip open the lid. The wiring exits the bottom of the light from the brass post.
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.
