Ship Lantern (1904)

This is a great nautical piece I got at auction. It was made in 1904, in Birmingham, England  by Griffith & Browett Ltd. I did a lot of on line research and found they were in business between 1867 and 1907. They were noted makers of copper hollow ware including marine ship lanterns. The piece is in great shape and appears to have all original pieces including the fabulous lens. All the original stamps are intact on the lantern. Some very interesting warnings are on the lamp. This could a fabulous centerpiece/conversation piece for your porch or deck.
