Another Chance lighthouse optic, this time a 4th order lens assembly. At just 26-in high (66cm) tall, it was designed for a harbour (Granton) for guiding ships in. The red sleeve indicates it was a port-side light, as opposed to starboard (green).

A mere £36,000. A great pity: they only have one and I wanted a pair...  ;D
