From a well travelled Cruising Sailboat, this vintage BRASS GIMBALLED SHIPS
OIL LAMP is a practical design in very good condition. There are many photos
showing its details and condition.
Made years ago in Holland by the respected maker Den Haan, and so marked on
the rowel. This lamp is much heavier and more carefully made than their later
Quite a good sized lamp- It measures about 10" tall, and will project about
6 3/8" inches from wall or bulkhead. Lamp shows light signs of shipboard use,
with no abuse.
Will be shipped with a fresh wick.
Burner is a great design- The upper burner and chimney section is hinged,
allowing the the lamp to be exstinguished or lit by tilting it back. It can
use any good grade of lamp oil or kerosene- Great to bring firelight to the
cabin of a cruising boat or a nautical den. A practical lamp for off-grid use
in these sketchy times.
Offered with a very low starting bid.
