This nautical antique is an original ribbed brass engine room ceiling light. This light will extend down from the ceiling by 8 inches when mounted. The original conduit opening on the front has been fitted with a brass plug. This light weighs nearly 5 pounds.
This light is re-wired with all new UL-Listed parts that are rated for any voltage under 250 volts. We also included a ground wire to prevent the rest of your house’s electricity from overloading. The bulb holder takes a medium base bulb of 75 watts or less, or you can use the newer compact fluorescent bulbs or LED lights with an Edison base.
This is a beautiful light that can be used inside or outside.
Some have single conduit holes, and some have double conduit holes. All original conduit holes will have a new brass plug installed as shown.
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.
