Great Antique Wrought Iron 18th C Rushlight Rush Light Candleholder Aafa Nr For Sale
Great Antique Wrought Iron 18th C Rushlight Rush Light Candleholder AAFA NR!
A Great Antique Late 18th Century Colonial Era Rushlight Candleholder- Three Day sale - !
Excellent condition on this great early piece of lighting, just as seen in Fire and Light in the Home Pre-1820 (Caspall), Early American Antique Country Furnishings (Nuemann), Antique Iron (Schiffer) and other books referencing metalware and lighting devices of 18th century America.
Rushlights were used to hold rush reeds soaking in grease or oil (like cat-tail reeds) which burned for illumination. This piece also has a rounded candle socket on the piece allowing it to use wax or tallow candles as well.
Please enlarge the photographs and you'll see the great early blacksmith workmanship! Note the twist design and even the tabbed penny style of the three feet.
Stands approx. 12 7/8" tall. A great display size!
This lovely piece of period lighting is offered on a three day sale without reserve.
Thank you for visiting us!
