Oil lamps have long been at the heart of our craft. Danforth Pewter oil lamps provide a reliable and utterly unique type of lighting, and many people love to illuminate their homes with these gorgeous works of art (that also happen to come in handy during a power outage)! The Evergreen Oil Lamp, the largest in the Evergreen family, is the newest creation from our talented pewter spinners. With elegant curves that remind us the beautiful conifers that grace our Vermont countryside, this lamp also boasts the hand-hammered ring around the base that makes our Cape family of lamps so special. This ring glimmers and sparkles, making this family of lamps a sight to behold.
All our lamps have adjustable flame settings so that you can choose how bright you want your light on any given night. They make for stunning backyard lighting, and you'd be surprised how much light they give off—they can light a small room, even casting enough to read by. They complement fireplaces and Christmas trees wonderfully!
Many people love to gift our oil lamps for weddings, anniversaries, housewarming, thank you, life achievement, and other momentous occasions. They make a lovely replacement for candles because they burn cleanly and do not flicker. Use them for special ceremonies, cocktail parties, family board game nights...any occasion will do!
Our oil lamps are made to last for generations. That said, over time the wick needs replacing, and the glass chimney (also known as globe) may crack or break. For replacement parts, click here. For more on how to use an oil lamp, click here.
