Measures approximately 33 cm tall including the extended handle and the maximum diameter 17 cm. Generally referred to as’onion lamps’ for the very obvious similarity with the shape of an onion, these were used for a variety of functions on board ships / boats. Those with clear glass were used below decks for cabin lighting or above deck as anchor lamps. The wire cage surrounding the globes provided a useful function of protecting the glass from damage by sails of flapping cordage. No major damage, glass intact, a few dints and marks commensurate with age. Markings found on the burner turner – Sherwood Bham. Please see all photos as these form part of the description.
