Our research found a few articles that were posted in early to mid 1930's copies of Motor Boating Magazine. The articles listed the company The Nautical Lamp Company was organized in Plainville, Connecticut in early 1932. A second article was a notification that the company was purchased by Wilcox, Crittenden & Company, Inc. of Middleton, Conn. in the later part of 1936, so the company was only in production for four years.
Here are images of the anchor lantern with it's NAUTIC BRAND manufacturer's label. We have seen a few other examples listed for sale (or sold) on the web, so other examples can be found. For other images and information, visit the webpage on Skipjack Nautical Wares website.
