Ship’s Anchor Lantern | c. 1940

Since 1838 marine vessels have been required to display directional lights to signal a craft’s position, heading and status. Often referred to as “Position” or “Running” lights, the combination of mounted red (port or left side), green (starboard or right side) and white right-of-way lights help the crew determine the pathway of other ships and avoid collisions. Early signal lamps were outfitted with oil burners and powered by kerosene. This brass lamp—with a moulded clear glass diffuser and handsomely aged patina—was salvaged from a ship, where it was used by crewmembers at night when hauling up the boat anchor. Beautiful when illuminated by a pillar candle, it makes for a perfect industrial component or marine feature to any space, as well as an authentic addition to a naval or maritime collection.
