Vintage Perko (Perkins Marine) galvanized 360 deg. Originally used as anchor light or “not under command” (captain not at helm) light for large vessels. This is one of the largest of it’s kind I have ever seen. 19″ tall including hanger ring, and 10″ in diameter. Turret style top is brass or brass plated. Original fresnel clear lens, with a white frost at top factory? Lens is securely in place with factory sealer, probably stove seam sealer. Galvanized finish lamp with anodized cage surround to protect lens. The finish is gone on the cage. Cage attached with stainless screws. High capacity oil or kero tank to supply wick with fuel. Wick included as is working flame adjuster mechanism. Looks like wick holder maybe non original or sourced part (Eagle). No pinhole leaks detected visually in tank seam solder.
