Large 19th Century Quadruple Gimballed Whaling Oil Light
Date: 19th Century
Dimensions: H 67cm W 61cm D 61cm
Impressive and unique in its size this large rare oil whaling ship lamp.
It is heavy because it is made of wrought iron, the quadruple gimbal in the center kept the whale oil reservoir and the burning flame steady in the heaviest of seas or winds.
Now you could fill it with regular lamp oil or place a candle on the reservoir for a more animal friendly lighting solution.
This antique gimballed whalers ship lantern or cage oil lamp is a fine piece of nautical antique.
