PRESENTED is a very large antique Masthead Light with a kerosene burner by British maker, Meteorite. We date this to the early 20th century. Given its size, this would have been for a fairly good size ship. The maker’s tag on the front is imprinted:
Patent No. 546575
And others pending
CONDITION: This lamp is in good condition with parts intact and the fresnel glass without cracks. If the buyer wishes, we can have the lamp polished. We can quote both a price and expected time for having this done, but the buyer should allow at least a month.. The kerosene burner is original with a fitted hurricane glass. There is the expected marks of age and use, and a small dent in the copper around the base.
