The heavy construction of this explosion proof Post Light By Russell and Stoll allows this stunning piece to weigh in at just under 21 pounds. Russell and Stoll made this light to measure 13 inches tall. The base measures 4 3/4 inches square with the widest section of the light housing measuring almost 7 inches wide. The undamaged glass globe is about 6 inches tall and has raised ribs on the interior surface that helps magnify the displacement of the light.
To access the bulb, the top section of the light spins free off the base. The top section that spins off as one piece consists of the cage, the globe, and the large cast bronze section just below the globe.
This item is listed on the sale page due to the cage being slightly bent. If you’re looking for the same light in better condition, check here!
We have installed a new bulb socket made by Westinghouse Electric that is UL-Listed and rated for any voltage under 250 volts. (This means that the picture with the electricity information is not referring to this current light – picture was just taken for detail.)
Additionally, we have installed new wiring including a ground wire that exits the light from the center of the base. The original conduit hole on the lower housing as been fitted with a threaded brass plug. The housing on this light has the original builders plate that includes the Underwriters Laboratory certification.
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.
