Vintage Wall Light – Heavy Brass Nautical Bulkhead Pattern A
Old brass ships’ bulkheads are becoming very hard to source, so we picked up this batch while we could.
These are fully stripped and polished, inside and out, with lovely imperfections from the casting process visible, reeking of character. They’re also solid brass, and feel it.
What strikes most about this particular vintage nautical light is the amount of care and imagination that went into the design (for it only to be painted over and slapped onto the side of a ship). There are little details everywhere you look.
The light bulb fitting – this takes an E27 light bulb of any wattage, though we recommend LED – is accessed by unscrewing the wing-nuts around the edge, lifting off the copper-caged top then the glass. Even the glass dome is hefty!
This is a statement piece. An increasingly rare vintage light – at least 50 years old – that will last a lifetime (and more).
Weight: 4.6 Kg, 19cm diameter, 24 cm long, 15 cm high.
