I've been frequently asked where I got my brass port and starboard lamps in my Tiki bar.... this is the source on ebay. They come directly from India, and with shipping come out to 24.50 each. Good quality with heavy bevel glass lens. I've seen the same ones sell in shops for $50+, though there are cheaper, not so nice ones out there too.

I wish they weren't brass, but I suppose if I left them outside for a while they might turn a nice other color. ; )

Thanks!

The lamps aren't lacquered, which is usually common for brass items to keep them from tarnishing. They should age real nice outside, or you can speed up the process with that chemical from craft stores for aging copper, steel & other metals.
