This is a beautiful faithful reproduction of a piece of British naval history. A white light hung near the bow when at anchor was a standard way to signal that the ship was not moving - at anchor. 11" tall with a base 5-1/4" in diameter and a large closed hook at the top. The glass is a Fresnel type of design, which is used to distribute the light widely. The wick is 1/2" wide. Lamp oil (available locally) is recommended but kerosene works too. Very handsome.
Note: Typical burning time is 6 hours, depending on how high the wick is set.
