This is an awesome cast brass Pauluhn orange ceiling light. It measures about 8 1/2 inches tall by 6 inches wide. Beautiful orange ribbed globe. The top ring of the fixture is marked “Pauluhn Electric Mfg. Co. Pearland, TX”. The single conduit hole in front was fitted with a copper cap. Weighs a hefty 8 1/2 pounds!!
This is a used light that was recovered during one of our many different salvage operations. It will have minor surface ware from being used on a working vessel. The orange glass is in good condition has some minor chipping on the body.
The new bulb holder takes a medium base bulb of 75 watts or less. We drilled a small hole in the base of the light for the wiring to exit and not be seen after installation. The new wiring will work with any voltage under 250 volts and includes a ground wire. Remove the four screws on the cage to access the bulb holder.
This light can also be used as a piling or post light as it is weatherproof.
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.
