This large and exceptionally beautiful oil lamp is 11" tall, with a base 5-1/2" 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 3/4" wide. A faithful reproduction of a piece of British naval history: historically, a white light hung near the bow when at anchor was a standard way to signal that the ship was not moving.
This lamp is intended to be used while hanging. The air vents are on the bottom of the lamp and it needs the air circulation to burn properly. Lamp oil (available locally) is recommended, but kerosene works too.
