Traditional Style Anchor Lantern
A Robin's Dockside Shop -
Exclusive. Made special order by a factory in Taiwan.
Pictures do not do this
lamp full justice. This is the classic
solid copper anchor lamp used on sailing ships for hundreds of years
and one of the most handsome lamps that we carry.
Lamp is hand machined in pure
heavy-gauge copper with brass trim. The Fresnel style lens
is made to magnify the oil lamp light to be visible
for 20 nautical miles.
The anchor lamp is named
for it's use. A 360o white light is required to be
displayed at the highest point
( the tallest mast) on
all vessels at anchor or under way at night. These oil
burning lanterns were made to be lit and hoisted to the top
of the mast with one rope tied to the handle and a 2nd rope
tied to the bottom bail to keep it from swaying as the ship
14.5" Tall x 7" Dia.
