Sconce, Skot, Exterior



Exterior, caged, nautical flush-mount bulkhead light with aluminum cage and housing, and an acrylic half-masked globe. This fixture is called the "Skot". It was designed by Lauritz Knudsen for the high-end lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen. The half-masked globe is clear on one half, the other half has a metallic finish to direct light out of the clear area of the globe. Inside of the housing is a ballast and snap-in CFL lamp-holder with an output of 120v, 60Hz. The aluminum cage and housing have matte gray finish. Condition varies per piece. This light has not been tested. This light was salvaged from the MV Twin Capes, a ferry that traveled between Lewes, Delaware and Cape May, New Jersey on the Delaware Bay. The MV Twin Capes was in operation from 1975 to 2013 when it was retired from service. Between 1994 and 1996, this ferry underwent an extensive, $27 million, renovation project, resulting in the classification of the Twin Capes as a miniature cruise ship. In 2010, due to a decrease in ridership, the ferry was announced for sale by the Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) and later made its final voyage in summer of 2013. The MV Twin Capes was towed out of Cape May in 2017 to be stripped and salvaged. On July 20, 2017, the Twin Capes was towed out of the Cape May Terminal to be stripped before a planned sinking as an artificial reef in 2018. She was scuttled on June 15, 2018, in the North Atlantic Ocean to become part of the Del-Jersey-Land Inshore Artificial Reef. The MV Twin Capes and items salvaged from it are featured in Season 9, Episodes 4 and 5, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs". Note, most of these have paint or other marks on them.
