Bronze Anchor Light
8.75"W x 11.5"D x 20.75"H. Among classic ship's lanterns, the anchor light stands out for its comanding looks and its enduring practicality. Brass sheet beats rust and even acid rain. A handmade glass lens distributes light 360 degrees. Heavy cast handles fold down when not in use, but are available for hooking the lamp up using a bracket, a rope, or a tree branch. It functions on lamp oil, but is easily converted to electric.
26.5"W x 78.75"H. Adjustable height. Right from the bridge of a 1940s Navy destroyer...heavy cast bronze and aluminum, it must be nautical. Balanced on a surveyor's tripod, looking like a million dollars, it smells of salt and sea while managing to convey cool and modern. And it translates into sophisticated home décor.
1928 Cadillac Head Lamp
29.25"W x 71"H. A combination of polished aluminum and brass brings home 1930s style, perfection and craftsmanship. Check out its details, its imposing size, and the tall ebonized tripod complete with a travel compass dating back to the Mille-Miglia of the 1920s!
Main Hold Lamp
19.25"W x 16.5"D x 20.25"H. Handmade in airplane aluminum. Stainless steel wires up to 2 meters length with 2 disc guides. Bronze hardware. 100 watts. Ceiling bracket. It's incredible that so few Admiralty lamps from the early 1900's have survived. Using old and oft-forgotten techniques, we have been able to bring back the interesting shapes of early hold and go down lamps. Impressively large and practical, they were built to last.
39.5"W x 76.75"H. Solid aluminum cast bracket. Polished aluminum pipe tripod. Brass hardware, solid brass folding floor pads. 100 watts. Our spotlight dates back to the 1930s and was likely used on a French Navy battleship. By moving slatted louvers the signalman sent short and longer spaced rays of light (morse code) that could be read by trained sailors in the distance.
Half Mile Ray Searchlight
23.5"W x 64.5"H. Head rotates up and down when dial is turned. Copper and aluminum head. Large coil cord with dimmer. 60 watts. Our faithful reproduction of a 1930's Navy searchlight is mounted on a mahogany tripod, its angle adjustable with a clever piece of 1930's technology. The overall look is cool, contemporary and at the same time historically correct.
Retro Style Lamp
17.75"W x 17.75"D x 78"H. Basic early industrial design, made to serve and serve well. 1930s, the dawn of a new era with a focus in minimalism and ease of daily use. An aluminum weighted and wheeled base holds a pole and a long-reach lamp. Ready to illuminate an architect's drafting table or a reader's favorite armchair. Polished aluminum and nickel-plated brass.
