Not many of these old lights have survived time's ravages. They are particularly vulnerable to salt spray and conditions on the waterfront. This light is made of rolled sheet iron, soldered and crimped together. The top is capped with double-brass smoke bells. The oil font is brass that has turned dark with age. The old burner was missing so I replaced it with an original unused burner and wick.
The light has a fine antique look with a dark finish and traces of fine, stable rust. In spite of its age, it is still very solid with no damage. It stands about 13 inches tall, not counting the wire bale. This is a rare example of what was once a common lamp on ships and the working waterfront.
