This original nautical ceiling light with brass pan cover will extend down from the mount surface by about 12 inches. To access the bulb, spin off the brass cage and the glass globe. There are three mounting lugs on the top of the light body. The cover measures 13 3/4 inches and is removable. This light weighs nearly 9 pounds.
The new bulb holder takes a normal screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less. We drilled an exit hole on the top of the light that allows the wiring to not be seen after installation. The new wiring will work with any voltage under 250 volts. The two conduit openings on the front of the light have had copper plugs installed.
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.
