Unpolished Russell & Stoll Bulkhead Light Salvage From USS Forrestal Navy Ship
This is an original, unpolished cast brass yes, it is brass under all that paint! Made by Russell & Stoll. From the top of the wall box mount to the bottom of the cage it measures about 9 inches tall x 5 inches wide (not including the mount holes). When mounted to the wall it will extend out by about 7 inches. The one conduit hole on the bottom edge of the light has been fitted with a copper cap. The light weighs about 10 1/2 pounds. This light has been totally rewired, including a ground wire, with all new UL-Listed parts rated for any voltage of 250 volts or less. The new bulb holder takes a normal screw in house bulb of 75 watts or less. A new hole was drilled in the center of the wall mount on the back to allow the wiring to exit the light and not be visible. This light is in original, as-found condition, paint and all. It will have some surface wear and you can clean it up or leave it as is. The glass globe is in good shape and pretty clean.
