The On/Off shutter works easily and wmoothly even after all of these years. Who knows on what German ship this signalling light was on during the war!?

The single wick burner puts out a substantial amount of illumination along with the magnifying effect of the lense this produces quite a bit of light that can be seen for miles. 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 oil burner will be shipped with wick already placed within the oil burner. Any electrification or modifications done to this item will not be in accordance with any UL testing or adherence and may present an electrical hazard. 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. Caution must be taken when operating any of these oil burning lights due to the inherent fire hazard of the flammable liquid and potential spills. Note that this naval or nautical navigation light was originally meant to be used with a flammable liquid (kerosene) 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.
