Each Harbour Lights piece is based on an original historic lighthouse and each one is a hand numbered edition. Each one gives you the opportunity to become a member of the Harbour Lights Collectors Society. Only 5608 were made in this series.
Information on Macquairie: This piece depicts the first lighthouse ever built in Australia, having been constructed in 1816-18 at South Head in Sydney Harbour by then governor Lachlan Macquairie. The light was visible for 22 miles and guided untold numbers of ships safely into the harbour. In 1880 the crumbling foundation made it necessary to replace the light with a newer building just 12 feet from the original tower.
This piece is approximately 6 x 7 inches and is in perfect condition, mint in its original box with Certificate of Authencity, never displayed and stored climate controlled and smoke-free.
