This ¾” thick Heceta Head Light is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called West Coast Lighthouse Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her thirteenth year of business. This series was introduced March 1, 1995 and retired May 31, 1995.
Taking nearly two years to build, this beautiful structure is on a rugged outcrop eleven miles north of Florence, Oregon. Originally, this lighthouse lantern was a five-wick coal-oil lamp and the first-order Fresnel lens, but has since been replaced by a 1.1 million candlepower bulb that burns in the lantern.
Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa.
