Large Ship Navigation Lamp by

G.Gillard of Auckland, New Zealand


Presented is a very large antique kerosene ship’s navigation light.   The maker’s tag on the front is imprinted G Gillard, Cert Maker,

Auckland, and shows the serial number 966.

This fine lamp was intended for use when a ship was “Not Under Command”.  This generally meant that the vessel was restricted in her ability to
maneuver, aground or without propulsion. The red all-around filter that was used for this purpose is removable so that the lamp will
show a white light when in use as an anchor light.

Navigation lamps this size and in good condition are a great addition to any maritime collection.  The “New Zealand” pedigree makes this an even more unusual and collectible piece.
