This ship's lamp is a reproduction of the Light Anchor Lamp from a Victorian ship used to illuminate decks. Even before the ships were equipped with electricity, British sailors tied such lamps to the ropes and pulled them to the highest point of the main mast. The lower hinge was used to stabilize the lamp to prevent it from swaying too much. The white light of such a lantern signalled to other ships that the ship was at anchor. Such storm lights or ship lights were used on board sailing boats from the late 18th century to the second half of the 19th century.More information
