The Dutch-made Gimbal Oil Lamp is a beautiful brass sconce that mounts to a wall or boat bulkhead. The fuel font of this solid brass oil lamp is weighted so that in heavy seas it will swing easily when gimbal mounted to a bulkhead. Brass gimbal bracket and smoke bell accompany this lamp.
The manufacturer of this Gimbal Oil Lamp, 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.
