We bought this in a gift shop in Corolla NC. They were used in the deck of wooden ships to allow light in below decks, this is a reproduction of course. We had it on display on a shelf, but it was upside down and that bothered me. So I made this simple holder so it is in the correct position. I did not make it flush as it would have been installed on the ship so we could see more of the glass, but now it is right side up. The wood is Black Walnut, legs turned on lathe, 3 coats of tung oil.

Nifty display stand. Did the facets below help distribute the light?

Very cool I learned something new today. Never knew something like this existed. Nice work in showing it off!

Excellent! I too have one of theses sitting upside down on a shelf. Never thought of making a stand for it. One more item for my todo list.
