L5 WWI Torpedo Boat Destroyer Side Lights
Attention Passionate Collectors!!
Found in a San Francisco auction, a pair of the most exquisite World War One USN Torpedo Boat Lanterns.
We've had some of these lanterns over the years but never have we seen a pair so beautifully restored to a
jewelers grade finish.
As one can see from the photos, the pair have but one dime-sized dent on the top of the Starboard lantern.
The wonderful outside finish would give you the feeling that these lanterns were never used at sea but look
inside to find active sea time on these artifacts.
The Port lantern has an old electric socket and the Starboard is empty. If would be easy to wire both to light up
the old, excellent condition red and blue lenses. Lanterns are 18 1/2 inches tall with the carrying handle up.
Full width is 16 inches and they are 7 1/2 inches deep.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a pair of very special lanterns.
Shipping cost of $100 included in the price of the lantern to the lower 48 U.S. States.
