This is as authentic as they get. 1900's German surveyor's tripod and a 1946 bronze tugboat searchlight have been paired to create a unique light fixture suitable for any room of the house/office or beyond. Bring warmth to a corner or create a dramatic accent with this special light. Four coats of polyurethane varnish preserve the chrome-plated searchlight's salt-infused and polished patina. Cloth wrapped wire cord is new and the light has been completely rewired to run on electricity.
