Ref: 6537

SOLD

A large and heavy 7" diameter and 2" thick deck prism light. This glass piece was designed to be inset into the deck of a ship to allow light below. The patterned side would face down, allowing for more dispersal of the light rays. This example was poured from green glass (often referred to as a bottle glass" as it was the most common colour of the time. The flat side shows considerable wear from the ship's deck being scrubbed and walked upon. Some edge chipping and expected wear but an uncommon thing to find. Late 19th century.

Dimensions: 7"x2"
