Tripod Floor Lamp – Large Vintage Brass Ship’s Cargo Light on Heavy Teak Tripod
£745.00 (inc VAT)
Own a riveting piece of maritime history with this large vintage brass nautical cargo light, mounted on our heavy teak surveyors’ tripod. We have sourced just a limited run of these hard-to-find beauties.
The lamp itself measures 50 cm long, with a 35 cm diameter face. The original ocean-going paint has been removed and the brass polished to a shining finish, complete with patina and a few minor dents from its history of service at sea.
The brass-framed glass lens is removed by unscrewing six fixings at the front, and lowered to suspend on a hinge. We have replaced the old electrical fitting with a new standard E27 light bulb fitting and wired with vintage-style flex, switch and plug, ready to go. You can see the effect of even a small 60W filament bulb illuminated inside – the light flares and blazes in yellows and orange. A large globe light bulb would be still more effective.
On the heavy teak tripod it stands roughly 140 cm tall rising to 180 cm extended.
This would make a rare and stunning statement light in a lounge or hallway, or in the reception area of a restaurant.
