Wanted - Period Cabin Light Fitting

Recommended Posts

I’m looking for one cabin light fitting to match others on our 1958 boat. On line and boat jumble searches have failed so far. Photo attached. Advice welcome.68EBC568-E571-4A29-B405-DFA6CF575161.thumb.jpeg.c1b5748e574b7427e4298aa4184bb25c.jpeg

I am aware of the superb work by Grendel on the BA models! I am looking for 1/1 scale.

Correct. I may know of some more brand new in wrapping, not sure if they are the fronts and backs though

As JawsOrca says ouch! but this maybe your chance to get a lamp which is very similar to yours, it might be even worth getting in contact with them to see if they just have a shade that you can fit to a hardwood mounting block.

Thank you JawsOrca and Ranworth Breeze. In amongst the German small print I spotted the name Davey (already suggested by Spider). I think I may carry on looking as the wallet began to feel unwell. My plan B is to use a brass circular lamp, readily available at modest cost. Many thanks for your suggestions.
