Check out this listing for this painted signal lamp! Invented by the renowned Arthur Cyril Webb Aldis, these signal lamps, also known as Aldis lamps or Morse lamps, were once a staple on the mastheads of ships and on pedestals.
Built to withstand the rigors of sea travel, this signal lamp is not only durable but also versatile. Its ability to transmit information through light, typically in the form of Morse code, makes it a valuable tool for communication both day and night. Whether you’re an avid collector or simply appreciate the art of nautical engineering, this lamp is a must-have for anyone with a love for the sea.
To operate the signaling apparatus, lift the signaling handle, located on each side of the lamp, up from the locked position, and turn it away from the light body. This opens the metal levers behind the lens.
