Maple Leaf Tartan Tea Light
a.k.a. "Canadian Tartan", "Confederation Tartan"

Provincial and Clan/Family Tartans are literally a "labour of love" of the Diva! Great effort is made to source the colours and set the pattern to accurately represent specific tartans in glass! Each tartan item takes hundreds of 1mm glass threads that are all cut and positioned by hand. Each stage of the process requires precise kiln firing schedules developed over years of experimentation. Lori is thrilled to offer this potential heirloom product with consistent results and quality.

 The colours of the maple leaf through the changing seasons became the basis for this asymmetric tartan designed by David Weiser in 1964. Known officially as the Maple Leaf tartan and unofficially as the "Confederation" Tartan. The pattern incorporates the green of the leaves' summer foliage, the gold which appears in early autumn, the red which appears with the coming of the first frost, and the brown tones of the fallen leaves. The tartan was made for Highland Queen in anticipation of the centenary of Canada's Dominion status in 1867.

Any of the "Canadian Tartan Collection" is available by special order in a variety of  platter, plate and sconce sizes. Priced accordingly.
