I am offering an Original (not a reproduction) Starboard Navigation Lantern. Based on the design, quality, and materials used, it was likely built in the 1940s by the prolific Perkins Marine Lamp & Hardware Corp (PERKO) based in Brooklyn. It measures 7½” tall (with the bale down) x 7” wide x 6” deep and weighs 3 pounds. The brass has been polished and clear coated, while the galvanized tin has been painted with antiqued dark green. Included are the original electric lighting fixture with a power cord, with in-line switch, and original oil font. Also. The green (turned blue) dioptric (ribbed) door glass lens appears to be original and in near perfect condition. The Perko Company information is engraved or embossed on the face of the adjusting knob as well as on the trade mark tag, still affixed to the mounting bracket. The top of body has a 2” thumb shaped dent, but overall the condition is very nice considering its advanced age. Someone has spent a lot of time and effort refurbishing this nautical artifact, which makes it an exceptional piece of U.S. Maritime history. Additional Nautical Items Available - Please Call Cliff @ 760-736-8101 For More Information.
