Ships Bar Hanging Nautical Glass Tea Lights - DG15242

We have many themes in ship and nautical lighting - a few are ubiquitous, many are not and some are unique. These rope hanging "Ships Bar" glass tea lights fall in to the latter category and alongside the best selling shades of blue we have the unusual but realistic clear glass. These came in to existence (and stock) when a nautically styled old inn on the river in the West Country chased us up for a tea light fishing float. We got these designed and have called them "Ships Bar" ever since. Great for outdoors, decking or on the boat. Good size too at 17 cms across and 13 cms in height - this excludes the hanging rope. So all you need now are the tea lights!  Best selling line and often in short supply.





Nautical Roped Knot Lamp - DGKNOTLP

Nautically themed rope lamp made of sturdy thick hemp rope. Comes with linen style fabric shade. All fittings are for the UK which differ from Europe and the USA. We have always sold the nautical rope knots separately but what a good idea to combine with a lamp shade.

The nautical rope knot with shade measures 49 cms in height. The depth and width with the shade both measure 30 cms. The actual rope knot measures 19 cms in height and 16 cms in width. This includes the wooden base.

Great inexpensive decor for nautical bedrooms, living rooms, in fact Nigel from the Portsmouth Hoy has just walked in to the shop and asked for two for the pub so let's add "great nautical decor" for restaurants and pubs. Might do a deal with him to include one of their marvellous Sunday lunches.



Rope Knot Lamp - DG8920

This quirky rope knot lamp has been the best seller for living rooms over the last couple of years and adds charm and style to nautically themed homes. It also makes a good nautical bedside lamp.

We sell some great nautical lights in our online store so please take time to browse through the alternatives.
