Among the handful of classic ship's lanterns the anchor light stands out for its commanding looks and its enduring practicality. Brass sheet beats rust and even acid rain. A hand made glass lens distributes light 360 degrees. Heavy cast handles fold down when not in use, but are available for hooking the lamp up using a bracket, a rope, or a tree branch.
It functions on lamp oil, but is easily converted to electric. Above all, its classic shape is handsome, sturdy, and the way it's made will make it survive generations.
