Seller: pooblesdad (146) 100%, Location: Devizes, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 183537095726 You are invited bid for this early 20th century masthead light by Simpson and Lawrence. This heavy galvanised metal lantern survives in good condition considering its decades of maritime use. The glass Fresnel lens is totally intact. There are four metal loop brackets, two on each side, these would have supported the lamp when attached to the top of the ships mast. The lamp measures 31 cm tall and 21 cm wide including the brackets, and 17 cm front to rear, it weighs about 3 Kg. The lamp is without its burner but has been converted to make a table lamp by the addition of an electrical bulb socket. Its known history is that it was purchased in the Gilbert Islands in the Pacific in the mid 1970's.At some stage in its life the outer galvanised main body of the lamp has been painted in a thin copper finish, this should be easy to remove, if required, to return it to what should be a nice old darkened pewter coloured patina. Condition: Good, Object Type: Mast Head Lamp, Maker: Simpson and Lawrence, Country/Region of Origin: Glasgow, Primary Material: Metal, Original/Reproduction: Vintage Original Insights Exclusive
