I personally removed these from a wonderful and classic 42′ Chris-Craft lapstrake wood hulled sportfishing boat ” Sno Bird III ” that was featured in the 1976 movie The Jaws of Death. They were manufactured by one of the best manufacturers of marine hardware, Wilcox-Crittenden. The lenses are in excellent condition, and they are solid, heavy glass with beautiful clarity that only glass displays, and they are with no cracks or breaks. The bases are either brass or bronze and the walls are a very heavy1/8th inch thick as you see in the fotos, and they have no significant dings, dents, or deep scratches. They measure approximately 9-1/4″ x 5″ in size. They are of the wonderful and classic’teardrop’ style, and they are also hinged to facilitate the easy replacement of the lightbulb that would be in a mount over which these light lenses would be fitted. The light bases are NOT provided but readily available from any number of marine supply stores. You are getting only what you see in the fotos. You are getting both the Red and Green light bases. If you’re doing a restoration, or just want to achieve a beautiful classic look on a boat or property, these are perfect for you.
