Presented here is the vintage brass Ankerlicht oil lantern made by D.H.R. The company Den Haan Rotterdam was established in 1922 by Marinus den Haan for tinsmithing. He started producing various forms of tin ware but mainly, nautical items made of tin. After a few years, he produced ship’s lanterns and he expanded his company and its products owing to its increasing demand; although the company was almost completely destroyed during the World War II, yet it was reinitiated by a few skilful workers and the company was slowly mechanized.
It continued to flourish as the nautical items began exporting, as well, and soon thereafter, the product range expanded and the company continues its tradition till date. It produced both marine and decorative searchlights, lanterns, navigation lights, signaling lights, air horns, spare parts etc.
On offer here is the D.H.R. Ankerlicht brass oil lamp which is present in an excellent condition despite its age. It was a hanging lamp which could be used for decorative purposes using oil as the light source. The body is made of polished solid brass and is completely rust free. The frosted glass is intact and scratch less and the title Ankerlicht is clearly embossed on the top of the lamp.
It is a perfect fit for marine themed interior which can be incorporated in your home, garden, office, restaurants or cafés.
