This is an amazing antique hand-riveted three-light ship’s lantern, dating from the late 19th Century, signed R.C. Murray and Company. Hanging from an unusual spiked chain, the lantern begins with a looped iron arch that supports the lantern body. It has a substantial top with a flat roof, connected to the base by four iron rods. A glass cylinder encloses the three bobeches. The base of the lantern, hinged for easy access to the bulbs, has a hand-riveted fastener held in place by a hook attached to a chain. The underside of the lantern is adorned with a pair of torsade-bordered scrolls and an ellipse. The lantern is marked “Anchor. Lampads No. 102. R. C. Murray & Co. Limited, 37 Cavendish St., Glasgow.” This light fixture is in excellent condition with a lovely patina, and the glass is also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks. The pendant light has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. It measures approx. 9 ¾” wide, 22 ½” tall (lantern only), and 29” long overall.
