help with history and value of anchor lamp??

blondie73August 29, 2012

Hi all, i found this in my garage today while having a clearout, it belongs to my sister who bought it at a bootsale many years ago. Its a bit grubby but the glass is intact, the oil lamp bit's been taken out and someone had stated to convert it to electric. It's 18 inches high. There's a brass plate with 'Anchor' on it. Can anyone help with a bit of history and possibly a figure so i know roughly what to sell it for on ebay? kind regards.

It's a ship's "anchor" lamp. New they sell for about $175 to $200. Not worth as much since it has had the working parts removed.
Google anchor ships lanterns....there are lots of hits.
