In 1956, a lantern originally installed on the former lighthouse at Rottumeroog near the Dutch-German border was transferred to the 1912 Schilbolsnol Lighthouse near 't Horntje. That lighthouse was replaced by the present one in 1977, and the lantern was donated to a maritime museum in 't Horntje. It is now on display outside the museum.
