Name/Title

Lantern, Ship's

About this object

This brass ship's lantern was found on the site of the old Ashmore home at Waikawa but nothing more is known about its background. It was designed to be mounted to a bulkhead on board ship as general lighting but to also be portable.

The lantern is stamped as being made by Holder and Stroud of Sydney but the design is typical of lanterns produced in England by both Bulpitt & Sons and Alderson Gyde Ltd of Birmingham from the early to the mid twentieth century. This and the English lanterns share the following features: brass construction, three glass panels, a reflective white enamel back panel and a kerosene reservoir.
