    Haven't been able to find anything to compare this one with. It was used to mark the channel under a trussle in Portsmouth,Virginia. It has a mate, (port & starboard), thus green & red.
    Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

      The port and starboard lights for a tressel would be referred to as pier or bridge abutment lights. I have a catalogue from 1939 that shows similar lights from a different company,The Nautical Lights Company. I will post a picture.
