Eiffel's company in France produced a substantial number of pre-fabricated lighthouses, both skeletal and metal towers. One is Bahia Blanca in Argentina, which at 220 feet is the tallest skeletal in the southern hemisphere. I believe the lantern, etc, at the top may be a Barbier, Bernard & Turenne design. Also used on French design tripod towers
