Genuine ship lights are designed to be used in the masthead, ship sides, cabin, stern, deck, passageway and other locations. When a ship comes up for salvaging (after wrecks) or braking down (due to aging), the ship owner takes out the parts and auctions them in the open market. Ship Lights come as part of this auction. They are in good working condition with all their parts intact and functional. Since they are designed to work under harsh marine conditions they don’t burn out or breakdown for many years. Their aesthetic appeals make them good enough to be used in internal home décor lighting.
