It might be brutally cold in New England this morning, but if you can believe it, our beloved Boston Red Sox are down in sunny Florida training for the 2015 MLB season. We’re slightly jealous and dreaming of those warmer days when they return to Fenway. Until then, the scene on the Red Sox Baseball Table Lamp shade is taking us away to a warm day at the park!
The Red Sox Baseball Table Lamp is designed and made at our shop in Concord and constructed with three stacked major league baseballs. The base of the lamp is milled in the shape of home plate and made using ash (available in either painted white or clear ash). Ash is the wood used to make many of the major league bats. The lamp shade features original artwork, by a local artist, Jack Skinner of a game at Fenway Park between the Red Sox and the “evil empire” (aka the Yankees). In this game, the score board in left field shows the Red Sox leading 9-0, and the “empire” has one error! Wally is in the left field stands, your favorite icons are in their proper places in and around the park, and the fans sitting in the back of the stadium are wearing Red Sox team jerseys from recent teams, including the series MVP, Big Papi, David Ortiz.
We hope this lamp helps warm your hearts and minds as we head into spring. Fourteen more days to go! We are over-the-moon excited!
