Signal Lamp Red. Massive copper model with colorless 360° Fresnel lens along with red filter insert according to DIN 89950, 3 feet, bow-shaped handle and 3 (of 4) guide tabs at the sides. Hamburg, J. H. Peters & Bey, c. 3rd quarter of the 20th century. Electrified with cable and switch (220 V, Schuko plug). 15⅜ × 9 in (39 × 23 cm; diameter). 6 kg.
Lens and red filter by Glas Genthe, Goslar, with their “GGG” in triangle. – On the lid metal plate “WESTFALEN” as supposedly name of the ship, likewise serial number below the lid screw and manufacturer’s designation and DIN-number at the base body. – Light bulb defective. – In the area of the missing guide tab slightly dented and apart from the corroded handle and some touch of verdigris here and there particularly in the edges of
evenly fine , slightly patinized luster .
As per size and weight intended for the use on ships above 20 meter length, massiveness and, with regard to the generally fine preservation quite negligible, the missing of the tab stand for both the tough conditions of its use and the particular care these equipment parts, so essential for survival, received in an age before today’s light plastics.
