This lamp is more beautiful in person than in the pictures. Came in a very nice box, very well wrapped and came quickly. Will buying additional lamps in the future.
The Spruce Oil Lamp is the medium in the Evergreen Family, a three-piece series of handspun pewter oil lamps designed and crafted in our Middlebury, Vermont studio. This elegant piece is provides 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 Evergreeen family consists of the Evergreen Oil Lamp (large), Spruce Oil Lamp (medium), and Juniper Oil Lamp (small).
The elegant curves in this piece remind us of the conifers that grace our Vermont countryside. The hammered ring around the base glimmers and sparkles in any lighting.
All our lamps have adjustable flame settings so that you can choose how bright you want your light on any given night. 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!
Danforth 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.
