Vintage Brass Admiralty Patt Ships Lamp Light. This pattern was used by the Royal Navy in the early part of the 20th century. This has been rewired recently with a new retro cable and a new shade. This pattern is in our view one of the most decorative and imposing of Royal Navy lamps and these are often seen mounted down the middle of the wardroom table and wired in series. This type was used in the wardroom of the Royal Yacht Britannia. The stem is in the form of a Corinthian column and is surmounted by a Royal Navy fouled anchor on either side. The BC lamp holder and switchgear is working fine, although as with all antique lighting it would be worth having this checked over by a qualified electrician before using. The braided wiring has been replaced recently and meets modern safety requirements whilst maintaining the vintage look. A fused 13 amp plug is fitted to comply with UK requirements but it may need to be rewired for overseas use. These lamps are not gimballed but to avoid them moving on a rolling ship the lamp is extremely heavy, with pig iron mounted in the base and weighs in at 2.8 kilos. The base is has been recovered in original baize to avoid scratching the wardroom table. These lamps are getting increasingly hard to find now so grab a chance to own this fine example! The lamp shade is a modern replacement. Height to top of lamp holder 11.5” (29 cm).Diameter of base 6” (15cm) Great original piece. No major damage, a few dints and marks commensurate with age.
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
