The Dutch-made brass Cargo Lantern is a versatile lamp that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Because of the glass panels that surround the oil burner, the flame will not blow out in a breeze. The Cargo Lamp can be set on a table or hung from the brass bail. The lamp is constructed of solid brass with a polished and lacquered finish to ensure a long lasting shine.
The manufacturer of this Cargo Lantern, Den Haan Rotterdam, was founded in Rotterdam, Holland, in 1922. It began as a manufacturer of navigation and interior lighting for inland and seagoing vessels. All lamps, many of them replicas of old models, are handmade to commercial ship standards.
