This is an original, unpolished cast brass (yes, it is brass under all that paint!) nautical bulkhead light salvaged from the Navy ship, USS Forrestal.  From the top of the wall box mount to the bottom of the cage it measures about 10 inches tall x 5 inches wide (not including the mount holes). When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 7 inches. The one conduit hole on the bottom of the light has been fitted with a copper cap.  The light weighs 10 pounds.

This light has been rewired, including a ground wire, with all new UL-Listed parts rated for any voltage of 250 volts or less. The new bulb holder takes a normal screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less.  A new hole was drilled on the back to allow the wiring to exit the light and not be visible.

This light is in original, as-found condition, paint and all.  It will have some surface wear.  The glass globe is in good shape.

One bar on the cage is missing – see photo.  Won’t affect how the light works.

The USS Forrestal had a very colorful and long history – just Google her name for an interesting biography.  She was commissioned in 1955 and scrapped in December of 2015.

You will be shipped the USS Forrestal ship light shown in the photos.
