Antique Perkins Lifeboat Lantern


A very unique brass lifeboat lantern made by Perkins Marine Lamp Corprn., Brooklyn New York.  This lamp had to be made between 1916 and 1922 as that were the years before the company became Perko.  The glass lens has a slightly clear purple hew about it and the lamp itself is in excellent showroom condition.  This lantern has a very neat lever that pulls up a sheet brass lens protector, possibly for a quick lights off to save matches or signalling in distress….  Measures 12 inches tall or 17 including the handle when it stands up.  The diameter of the base is 6 and 3/4 inches.  A glorious find for any true marine lamp collector.  We pack and ship worldwide…
