Refurbished functional early 1900's Starboard Navigation Lantern. Based on the design, craftsmanship, and materials used, it appears to have been made in the early 1900's (in the U.S) for use on a large vessel. The quality construction is a very unusual combination of metals: the top section and hanging bracket are cast bronze, the electric outlet and screw-in cover are cast/turned brass, while the sides, bottom, and glass retainers are copper plated steel. Lanterns of this type were usually mounted on right side of the pilothouse and lighted while underway at night. This lantern measures 17½" tall x 16" wide x 13" deep and weighs 25 pounds. It has a 9" x 13" blue 112° dioptric (ribbed) lens, which was originally green but has turned blue due to the manganese glass curing agent used prior to 1915. Also, the original light fixture and cord are still in place This unique nautical artifact has seen extended sea duty and is a prime example of U.S. maritime history.
