Antique Brass Port and Starboard Oil Lantern 12"
Our antique brass port and starboard oil lantern is a solid antique brass reproduction of the traditional port and starboard lights. Our traditional lantern is perfect for display purposes or for decorating your den. 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. 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. Our antique port and starboard brass lamps can also be mounted anywhere, all hardware needed is included in the box.
