Unfortunately all data in wikipedia is in estonian (http://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ristna_tuletorn) so a liitle translation here: the height of tower - 29,5m but the light is 37m above the sea level, visibility of light - 31,5km. Built in 1874 from details made in Paris. Was damaged in WW I and repearing changed significantly it's original shape.

Admirality Baltic Pilot Vol II (NP19) describes it as 'red round tower, 30m in height' at the west end of Kopu poolsaar which is fringed with reefs extending 7.5 cables offshore, the coast is low and sandy with numerous boulders; the sandhills and trees commence 2.5 cables inshore.
