Vintage Copper and Brass Maritime Ship's Masthead Light



An authentic, vintage copper nautical lantern with brass accents and thick glass Fresnel lens. This circa 1950 marine light, manufactured by Tung Woo, Hong Kong, is hinged and hasped on top so that changing the bulb is easy. The lantern has all of its original brass fittings, with the exception of two lower mounts that were added on later. The light is shown un-electrified, but can be rewired (not UL listed) upon request.
