Years ago a good friend from the Boston area gave us a Shallot oil lamp that lives mostly on our kitchen table, but does extra duty to light the table for cocktail or dinner outdoor. We light it almost every night, particularly in the winter, and after so much use it still looks and performs as new. Danforth quality and craftsmanship is outstanding.
The Cape family is the newest addition to the Danforth line of artisan handcrafted oil lamps. The Bay Oil Lamp, the medium-sized member of the family, is an exquisite piece of lighting that combines the signature Danforth techniques of spinning pewter and hammering metal.
Our talented artisans are constantly exploring form and function in pewter, and the design of the Cape family lamps is a testament to their inventive creativity, combining techniques of spinning with hammering to create a lamp that is genuinely unique.
A wonderful wedding gift that "lights the way" for newlyweds as they begin their lives together, our lamps also make a stunning anniversary gift that celebrates years of warmth and intimacy. Let your lamp illuminate your holiday decor in December, warm the long nights throughout the winter, and then supplement or even replace the outdoor fire during spring and summer. All year round, whether on a dining table, a coffee table, or outside on a porch, the Bay Oil Lamp provides beautiful warm lighting that's perfect for a gathering of loved ones. Also, it's as functional as it is beautiful; it will reliably light the darkness during a power outage, providing security, peace, and even beauty during a time of uncertainty.
