Origin:  Japan

Made from solid brass and tempered glass. 

Shonan manufactured these during World War 2 until the firestorm on Japan ceased production. The tooling survived and production continued during the late 1950s until the early 1980s. 

Typically the daylight signalling lamp would have been used to signal from ship to shore, the precision optics of the reflector focuses the light output of the 12v 60w bulb to become narrow beam of intense light.

The lamp is made from brass with great mechanical features such as lamp focus mechanism and shutter controlled by the lever on the top.  The lamp also has pan and tilt levers for locking the fixture into position. 

The shutter works by the sprung lever pushing a cylinder over the light source.  After a push on the lever it automatically returns and shut off the light.  The same mechanical process as a morse code machine. The sight on the top of the fixture is used to target the receiver of the signal. 

All lights are professionally re-wired by our in-house team to exceed British Standards using CE approved components. Dimensions and weights are approximate.  For all orders to USA, UL listed bulb holders and 100v bulbs will be fitted.  All lights are sold ready for use in your home or commercial installation.  For any specific requirements please get in touch.  We are happy to discuss your individual project.
