Call The Pirate's Lair @ 540-659-6209

Important Note: All of the navigation lights offered here at The Pirate's Lair have been scrubbed clean and free of all accumulated black soot, any oil or kerosene residue, sea salt, grease and grime, and loose oxidation! Unless otherwise noted each nautical lantern, navigation light, or signal lamp have all been tested for leaks with a colorless and odorless lamp oil of which there may be remnants found in the oil reservoir and wick. There is nothing worse than getting years of accumulated black soot from burnt kerosene, or ships grease and grime on a wall or flooring. The navigation lights which you purchase from The Pirate's Lair will be ready for your use and display as there will be no need for you to first get any special industrial cleansers or caustic degreasers and special rubber gloves or cleaning utensils to first remove any of the aforementioned cleaning issues. Unless otherwise noted some crew mechanisms may be rusty and prevent wick operation. It's all done first as part of our service and price here at The Pirate's Lair!

Boat Signal Lantern, Unlabeled - #13
Dimensions: 9" high x 3.5" wide . Weight: 2 lbs. Unlabled and Unknown, standardized oil burning, 1900-1950, flat black, hand held boat signal light. Has a manually operating open/close shutter allowing or preventing light thru the magnifying fresnel lens. The shutter on this signal light works great opening and closing the shutter with ease but does not have a spring on it that some of the others do. This special magnifying lens amplifies the light from the single wick burner which would typically be used at night to send/receive messages in morse code. This was also a staple piece of equipment found in life boats. This lights up a 15'x15' room much better than a flashlight and would certainly last longer! Fully Tested and Functional. Odorless testing oil has been drained after testing. Existing wick or replacement will be shipped with light.

Please Read. First, these are the real deal vintage and antique navigation lights used aboard commercial merchant vessels and naval ships, with most dating between 50 and 110 years old well before even the most rudimentary safety standards were in place. Most of these navigation lights, lamps, and lanterns are kerosene oil burners and some have been retro-fitted and electrified to use a standard 60W, 110V 15amp household light. As with any antique or vintage item there is no warranty as to safety or workmanship meeting contemporary standards. As is our standard procedure, this navigation light has been tested and found to be functional. Odorless testing oil has been drained from the oil reservoir after testing but small amounts may still be present which could present a fire hazard. The existing wick and/or replacement will be shipped with light already placed within the oil burner. Any electrification or modifications done to this item may or may not (most likely not) be in accordance with any UL testing or adherence and may present an electrical hazard, and the item is being sold "as is" and may require re-wiring or electrical inspection by a qualified electrician at the purchasers expense and liability. Note that this naval or nautical navigation light was originally meant to be used and regularly maintained aboard a ship at sea on a daily basis by sailors familiar with this type of equipment. It is considered to be antique and its actual use as designed in a contemporary home environment presents a potential electrical or fire hazard which The Pirate's Lair cannot be made responsible. By purchasing this item the purchaser accepts full responsibility and liability of the operation and maintenance of this navigation light.
