*Definitions of Edition Types:
Limited Editions - only a specified number of replicas will ever be made from the original sculpture. Some lighthouses are available on a timed basis or may only be purchased through certain dealers. Once the edition is sold out to retail dealers, you may still be able to find them at a dealer for a time. Sea Shell Shop will list above whether we still have stock available. If you don't find what you are looking for here, Harbour Lights may be able to help you locate one through their 'Retired @ Retail' service.
Open Editions - Open Edition lighthouses, the edition
number includes a letter. The letter indicates the year in which the
lighthouse was manufactured with "A" assigned to the first
year it was available. Each subsequent year's numbering increases
the letter and restarts numbering at 1. An edition number of
"A542" would mean the 542nd item in the first year of
production. Often referred to as a Serial Number.
Edition Size - The quantity which will be or were
made in the case of limited edition lighthouses. In the case of most
limited editions, the edition size is printed on the flag. (See
photo by Artist's Proof.) Some lighthouses do not reach their full
edition size due to an error, variation, or early retirement.
About the Flag - The part of the sculpture with
the engraved name of the lighthouse, edition number and edition
size. Named for its flag-like shape. About flag modifications.
Glow - Great Lighthouses of the World - Harbour Lights' trademarked name for open edition lighthouses. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of GLOW lighthouses is donated to the historic or preservation society responsible for that lighthouse's maintenance.
Authenticity - (or Certificate) - The small folded document shipped with each lighthouse stating it is an authentic replica of the real lighthouse. In the case of limited edition lighthouses, the certificate states the edition size, but is not serially numbered. Replacement certificates are available from Harbour Lights.
