This Russell and Stoll stunning nautical light weighs in at just under 21 pounds. It measures 13 inches tall. The base measures 4 3/4 inches square x almost 7 inches wide. The glass globe is about 6 inches tall and is ribbed that helps magnify the displacement of the light.
The design of this Russell and Stoll light allows it to be used as a ceiling light or as a post light. The watertight construction allows for installations in wet and harsh environment locations. To access the bulb, the top section of the light spins free off the base. This one piece section consists of the cage, the globe, and the large cast bronze area just below the globe.
We have installed a new bulb socket made by Westinghouse Electric that is UL-Listed and rated for any voltage under 250 volts. Additionally, we have installed new wiring including a ground wire that exits the light from the bottom 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.
This light has some issues – some cracking on the cage bars, a bent cage, and the base has a bent up corner. This won’t affect how the light works.
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.
