NET-159 Stavoren High/Stavoren Rear Range Light is a “historic” one. So no physical evidence to be expected. Stavoren had lights at least since 1781. Three still existing lights refer to NET-012, NET-069 and NET-070. Around 1900 there was a fourth light, a little south of NET-070, to mark a line of sight with a light bouy and the rear high, that could be used if a Hindeloopen approach was needed via Stavoren.

The ARLHS NET-159 entry gives no further information, except for a picture. The picture shows NET-014 De reus van Lemmer, though:

Here is an interpretation concerning NET-159:

The original 1887 lighthouse of Lemmer is disassembled in 1968. For the shooting of a motion picture in 1993 a replica was needed as a piece of decor.  The movie was filmed on location in Stavoren for practical reasons. After filming the replica was donated to Lemmer and located in the harbour, were it still stands today. The picture accompanied to the ARLHS NET-159 entry shows the structure on location in Lemmer. NET-159 might refer to this structure when it was in Stavoren during film shooting.
