Antique Brass Port and Starboard Electric Lantern 12"
Our antiqued brass port and starboard electric lantern 12" is a modern working solid brass production of the traditional port and starboard lights. This traditional ships lantern is perfect for display purposes or decorating your den. There is room inside for a full size 40w light bulb. Because of the rules of the sea, ships traveling towards each other (bow to bow) know that their red or port light should pass the oncoming vessel on the port side which has the visible red light. Ships pass oncoming vessels in a port to port manner. This prevents confusion should either ship's navigator steer a sharp turn to the side. The green light is used on the starboard side and simply means that the ships do not pass starboard to starboard when they approach each other. It is in the unusual circumstance that craft will pass starboard to starboard. Our port and starboard brass lamps can also be mounted anywhere, all hardware needed is included in the box.
