Discovered in England, this unusual steel ship's lantern is of german origin. It has a plaque that reads"VEB Schiffslaternerwerk Ueckermunde". VEB means state-owned enterprise, common form during post-WW-II-State German Democratic Republic. VEB Schiffslaternenwerk Ueckermünde was founded in 1948. The patent number is Nr 7681. It is similar in design to those found on English fishing boats of the same period. It was an oil burning lamp that can still be used as such. The last photo shows it in the company of other lanterns from the same ship. It is slightly different from the others in that it looks like it would fit in a corner as it is triangular at the back with a rounded front. Perhaps a stern light. but it has remnants of red paint ? (It is last one - on the far right of the line up)
