Danforth Pewter Oil Lamp - Skipper

One of the smallest of the Danforth Pewter lamps, the petite Skipper Oil Lamp, is a gorgeously eye-catching piece of accent lighting that will provide an intimate, one-of-a-kind lighting experience.  The Skipper Oil Lamp is a smaller-sized lamp with a beautifully contoured pewter base that is handspun on a century-old lathe, then fitted with a burner and custom glass chimney, all by human hands.

Danforth oil lamps are as functional as they are beautiful. The smaller oil lamps are excellent for accent lighting.

Oil lamps create a cozy, unique atmosphere in any room. 

They are fit for many settings and occasions:

  • coffee tables
  • housewarming gifts
  • backyard summer barbecues
  • spring and autumn nights on the deck
  • use them if the power goes out to light up the darkness  
  • use them nightly as the sun goes down to create a beautiful evening ritual
  • a wedding gift that "lights the way" for newlyweds as they begin their lives together
  • meaningful anniversary gift that honors many years of love and intimacy
  • holiday decor, perfect for sitting around the Christmas tree
  • create an intimate New Year's Eve at home


​Each oil lamp is spun individually, by hand by talented pewter spinners. For this reason, all dimensions are approximate. Subtle variations are natural.

  • The Skipper Oil Lamp holds 4 oz. of oil. Oil burns at approximately 3 hours per ounce (based on our smokeless liquid paraffin oil)
  • Stands 6.5" high, including the glass chimney. The pewter base measures 3.25" in diameter.
