I HAVE 2 OF THESE FOR SALE AS A SET. THEY REALLY FUNCTION OR CAN BE DECORATIVE IF DESIRED.
The plate on this large lamp says "Cargo Light No. 3954 Great Britain 1939." It is of more recent manufacture than 1939 - that may be the year it was adopted. In excellent condition, this working brass lamp is about 15"H and 100% complete.
M-04 ENGLISH CARGO LAMP. Solid brass, 4-sided reinforced ship cargo lantern. Hinged top with thumb screw lock. Large font with oil burner and glass chimney slides in when the top is swung back. Hanging bail and 4 heavy cast brass support "eyes." Tag reads "CARGO LIGHT NO. 3954 GREAT BRITAIN 1939." 10 1/2 inches tall. 3 lbs.
Paid 100.00 EACH WHEN BOUGHT NEW (sticker on the bottom still)
Can ship if you pay.....paypal / cash accepted. Pick-up ok too $75 each.
