Seasons Oil Lamp with 10" Globe
ONLY 7 LAMPS REMAIN
Danforth Pewter is thrilled to announce the Seasons Limited Edition Oil Lamp. For our 30th Anniversary, we created our first-ever limited-edition oil lamp. We made 300 pieces, each one signed and numbered by the artist, and they sold out quickly. Since 2005 we have also sold out Woodland Ferns and Daydream oil lamps, along with the Morning Moon candleholder. With Seasons, we have created another unique piece of art, and again, we will only make 300 of them, after which we will retire the molds and this lamp design. Each of the Seasons lamps is signed by Fred and Judi Danforth and numbered.
Inspiration and Tradition
Fred and Judi Danforth live in the mountains of Vermont, surrounded by a stream, fields and woods. Judi drew inspiration for the low-relief sculptural motif of Vermont's distinct seasons from the natural beauty of the woods around their home. This design represents the rhythm of life: the phases of the moon and the changing of the seasons. Since Fred created the first Danforth oil lamp in 1976, oil lamps have become Danforth signature items. Each Seasons lamp is handmade in our Middlebury, Vermont workshop.
A Technical Masterpiece (Achievement)
The Seasons motif, cast in pewter from an original model hand carved by Judi is combined with a footed lamp body, designed and spun on a lathe by Fred. The Seasons lamp is unique on many levels, and will become a true heirloom, used and treasured by generation after generation of your family. It holds 16 oz. of oil.
The rampant lion touchmark was originally used by Thomas Danforth II in his pewter workshop in Middletown, Connecticut, where he worked from 1755 until 1782. Several of his six sons also used the rampant lion touchmark as they entered the pewter trade. In the mid-1800s, the Danforth pewtering tradition fell dormant, and when Fred and Judi Danforth revived the family trade in their pewter workshop in Vermont in 1975, Thomas Danforth's rampant lion touchmark was a natural choice for their work.
