Brass Nautical Pendant Light
This creation shows our ability to recover, salvage, and rebuild vintage nautical lights. This pendant light started out with a vintage cast brass nautical light that was made by Russell and Stoll in the mid 1950’s. Russell & Stoll were a large manufacturing company out of New York in the 1900s, that described themselves as “Water-proof, vapor-proof devices for Industrial and Marine Service”. There isn’t much online about the company but they appear to have been purchased at some point by an umbrella company, now selling high grade electrical components under the brand name Russellstoll.
You may be able to paint this light shade a different color other than green.
This light would look great in restaurants, bars or even your own dining room!
The green and white porcelain cover on this pendant light originally had some sort of cast aluminum housing and hung directly from a ship as a galley light. The bracket of this pendant light that is used to attach the chain was custom cast for us from broken nautical lights that were no longer usable.
This custom built cast brass pendant light is 18 inches tall (not counting the chain) and the green and white porcelain cover is 18 inches wide. It comes with 3 feet of chain, but more can be ordered if needed. To access the bulb, the cage and globe thread off as one piece. The green and white porcelain cover is held in place by the cage threaded back in place. The porcelain cover will have some chipping like the photos show.
This light has been completely rewired with UL-Listed parts made by Westinghouse Electric. The bulb socket takes a normal screw in house bulb of 100 watts or less. The wiring is rated for any voltage under 250 volts. We have also installed a copper ground wire.
Total weight including three feet of chain is just about 30 pounds. The weight is mostly the cast brass light that we started with.
Several pieces in stock.
