The Vestal Flame
Vesta of ancient legend was very sacred to the city of ancient Rome
for the belief held that as long as the fires burned in the Temple of
Vesta, the city would be safe. In the center of the temple was the flame,
which was perpetually tended by the priestesses of the goddess, The Vestal
Virgins. The Vestal Flame, trademark of Legendary Lighting, is known for
its unique shape. Often referred to as a maple leaf, or fleur-de-lis
pattern, its perpetual dancing beauty is unmistakable. It offers a soft,
romantic ambiance to any surrounding, gently casting light within a ten-foot
radius, and can appear as a beacon welcoming attention from a distance.
The magnetism of the Vestal Flame, combined with the beauty of copper
and the quality of fine craftsmanship, collectively form the lanterns
offered through Legendary Lighting.
