#0393 U. S. Navy Masthead Light

U. S. NAVY WW II MASTHEAD LIGHT

This great light was waterproof and sported 6 x 15 volts for very bright lights (2 only showing in the picture). Why 6 you ask? Because the light was positioned on top of the mast, making it hard to reach to replace a bulb during battle conditions, and if some burned out the others carried on! Polished and lacquered.

Weight 15 pounds.

#1787 Vintage brass ship's red "Not Under Command" Light - electrified with chain and switch

Vintage brass ship's red "Not Under Command" Light - electrified with chain and switch - original oil burning font/lens


Great vintage brass ship's red "Not Under Command" light - ready to hang in your nautical room/office/restaurant.  We sell lots of nautical lights and this "Not under Command" light is very unique.  Created to hang from the ship's mast with the red light on to denote the captain was not aboard.  It has 2 brass bales, 1 for hanging and 1 on the bottom to attach ropes to prevent the light from smashing itself against the mast as the ship moves at anchor.  I have always been very pleased to find one of these very well made lights .

If you do not like the inside red lens, it's easily removed, making it an Anchor Light with a clear Fresnel lens.  The light is original and outfitted with a large oil reservoir/font with wick and heat treated lens.

The whole unit comes out easily and can be used on outside picnic or BBQ table as a great mood setter.  Use the red lens on the font for extra effects.  Now you have 2 items from one item.

Brass Buoy Light with Double Hood

20" CIRCA 1920's VINTAGE- DOUBLE HOOD ORIGINAL U.K MADE BUOY LIGHT, PROFESSIONALLY POLISHED AND LACQUERED

Vintage buoy light 20" tall, with a double hood. Fresnel lens is in excellent condition. Professionally polished and lacquered.

Why the double hoods on the lights?  We were told by an expert, regular buoy lights like item #1035 were not very effective.  Due to seabirds constantly resting on the lights, despite the spike on top, would defecate and cover the lens with their excrements and eventually render the navigation light source useless.  Hence the double hoods! VERY RARE!!
