The Fastnet Brass Oil lamp is a traditional and attractive lamp in polished brass with a highly sensitive gimbal mechanism that ensures that it remains upright even in turbulent seas. A special feature is the heat-shield, which gimbals with the lamp. Maximum heeling angle for gimbal: pitch 30 degrees, roll unlimited. The lamp is also fitted with a carrying handle so that it can be lifted clear of the frame for portable use. Fitted with a hinged burner and 1″ wick for effective light.
