Item:302959589549Antique 1912 Pre WW1 solid brass ship's lantern original and unmodified and should be able to be lit. I think it is Royal Navy but it might be Merchant Navy? Manufactured by Eli Griffith & Sons in Birmingham, as details on the lamp front upper. There is very little doubt that it may have seen good service in the first World War. It is in extremely good condition for its 108 years of age. It weighs 7Kg and size is height 41cms; width 22cms & depth 13cms. Not surprisingly, considering its extreme age, the door key (triangular) & wick adjustment key (square) are missing. There is a small piece of brass rod missing from the door; which should be easy to replace. The ceramic reflector has a few very small cracks, and there is a small dent on the top cap. It has been in our family well before WW2, however the history before that is not known. It is time for a younger custodian to take care of this antique - thus the reluctant sale. Alternative delivery agent may be used. For collection in person please pay cash on collection. International bidders please see "Postage & Payments".On 20-Nov-18 at 09:43:21 GMT, seller added the following information: Please note "Maker" should read: - Eli Griffiths & Sons 1912Country/Region of Origin:United Kingdom, Primary Material:Brass, Time Period, War:WWI, Object Type:Lamp, Military Branch:British Royal Navy, Original/Reproduction:Antique Original, Maker:Eli Griffith & Sons Birmingham 1914
