The June arrivals are here and we are sure you'll be just as excited about the lineup as we are! Our research department chose to recreate a variety of lighthouses from across the country to satisfy any lighthouse lovers craving.
Two of the beautiful new pieces shipping in June are Cape Charles, Virginia and Price's Creek, North Carolina. Both pieces are very unique in their own way, adding character and charm to your collection of new editions. We are also proud to introduce our newest lens, Point Vicente, California. Here is a closer look at a few of our newest releases.
Cape Charles Lighthouse is located on Smith Island, just north of the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay. This sentinel is not accessible by car but it can be seen from Fisherman Island and a few other spots surrounding the Island. When visiting the area, you'll want to try and get a peek of this jewel of the coast. Since you can't get up close and personal with this lighthouse, simply take home our version of this beacon and enjoy it year round!
Price's Creek was built in 1848 and stood only 20 feet tall. It was the last lighthouse built along the banks of the Cape Fear River and today is the only beacon that still stands at the banks of the
well-known waterway. We have depicted the lighthouse as it stood in pristine condition.
The newest Fresnel Lens, scheduled to arrive in stores in September, is said to be our most intricate lens replica to date. With its unique bivalve design, the Point Vicente Third Order Lens is a gorgeous depiction of the lens that is still in use at the Point Vicente Lighthouse in California.
