Brass Double Stack Fresnel Light

This is an authentic brass double stack fresnel light, salvaged from a once working vessel. The red Fresnel lens are vivid red and are in great condition.

Red lights were used to indicate the left side (port side) of a vessel when traveling on the sea at night. It hasn’t been proven but folk stories have spread around that the term “posh” originated as an acronym P.O.S.H. (standing for “Port Out, Starboard Home) used by British Cruise-Liners when describing the cabin arrangements for their rich passengers who would pay extra to face the sunny (southern) side of the ship when crossing the Atlantic to and from America.

This double-stacked port sidelight is made of solid brass. It measures 16 inches tall with an 8-inch diameter.  There are 3 holes on the bottom of this fixture to mount easily onto the surface of your choice. This light weighs 22.9 pounds
