Courting Lamp

SKU #41-064-3300
$170.00

The courting lamp was used when a young man would call upon a young lady. The father of the girl would choose how much oil to put in, depending on how long he wanted the date to last. When the lamp went out, the date was over and the young man took his leave. It's a beautiful piece with a lovely story, and will enhance a mantel, a porch, or dining table for generations to come with its warm glow! An original Shirley Pewter piece that we produce in our Middlebury, Vermont workshop.


Lamp measures 4 3/4" high x 2 3/4" wide. Globe is 8 1/2" high. The courting lamp holds 4 ounces of oil. Replacement wick for the courting lamp is 89-064-0444 - Shirley Replacement Wick. Replacement glass globe for the courting lamp is 89-064-3121.

I saw this company on How It's Made and needed a thank you gift for a friend. I was looking for something unique and knew that she liked oil lamps. I ordered the Courting Lamp because I had never seen anything like it before. When it arrived it was beautifully packaged and the craftsmanship was outstanding. I loved reading the history of the lamp and the fact that the family has been hand making these for generations, that was one of the key factors of choosing this gift. I highly recommend them if you are looking for high quality craftsmanship along with something unique.

I own this beautiful light and loved it so much I purchased two more for gifts! It's the ideal gift for any holiday for families with young "teen" girls. It puts a smile on everyone's face when they read the "history" of the courting light. Someone told me the tradition started back in the 1800's...not sure of validity...but is truly a delightful conversation topic! It's a beautiful, tasteful piece with the glass globe and fits anywhere in your home. Highly recommend it!
