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!
