The Brootzo Deckhead is made from solid brass. It will not rust even when the salinity levels are high. It is a lamp with a brass grid cover and a prismatic glass diffuser. The lamp holder is porcelain. This light fitting is manufactured entirely in Greece. All brass parts have been molded in Greece and then hand processed and hand-assembled. The gauge of the body and the mesh cover is about 1.5mm. The high gauge makes the fitting a bit heavy but robust and unbreakable. It can be installed on the wall or the ceiling or on a post or on a boat indoors or outdoors. We provide you for life with spare parts so the lamp can be useful and shed you with light for many years to come.
