#0038 Vintage Brass U S Coast Guard Clear Lens Navigation Light - Marked "A", "U.S.G.C."

VINTAGE BRASS U S COAST GUARD CLEAR LENS NAVIGATION LIGHT-MARKED "A", "U.S.G.C."

The clear Fresnel lens is in very good condition, and has some small chips from extended use, which do not detract from its overall appearance.

The body is solid brass and is marked with the makers name:
"LOVELL,ARLINGTON. N.J."
The previous owner enjoyed the light for many decades, and had the light wired for in-house use.  It's ready to plug in and use.

All the brass hardware is in excellent condition.  The vertical brass rods, nuts, cap nuts, and the 4 tie down dogs were previously replaced and are still like new.  This great 48 pound brass beauty is 21" high- 24 1/2" to the top of its bird spike.

 Brass Buoy Light with Double Hood

20" CIRCA 1920's VINTAGE- DOUBLE HOOD ORIGINAL U.K MADE BUOY LIGHT, PROFESSIONALLY POLISHED AND LACQUERED

Vintage buoy light 20" tall, with a double hood. Fresnel lens is in excellent condition. Professionally polished and lacquered.

Why the double hoods on the lights?  We were told by an expert, regular buoy lights like item #1035 were not very effective.  Due to seabirds constantly resting on the lights, despite the spike on top, would defecate and cover the lens with their excrements and eventually render the navigation light source useless.  Hence the double hoods! VERY RARE!!
