Trinity House Light Vessel Harvie Lamp – LV 94 1939

Superb original Trinity House light vessel brass lamp.

Rare to find these all original Trinity House lamps are a great collectors piece. Complete with oil burners and superior bevelled glass. The makers badges on the front. We bought this without the glass chimneys , and had it professionally cleaned and polished. There a only a few cosmetic bumps that you would expect from a piece with this age and sea faring life.

Light Vessel 94 was built by Philip & Son, Dartmouth, in 1939. Named Brightside and later renamed Shipwash

Between 1939 – 1980 she was stationed at Shipwash & Morecombe Bay, from 1982 -1990 she was stationed at Newarp.

She was decommissioned in 1990. The majority of British light vessels were decommissioned during the 1970s – 1980s and replaced with light floats or lanby buoys, which were vastly cheaper to maintain, in 1974 at the time of Trinity House’s original development project, lightship annual running costs were ten times those of the lanby.
The remaining UK light vessels have now been converted to unmanned operation and most now use solar power.

In 2008 she was moored in Amsterdam and hired out for events.
