A stunning english Iron rush light. This item which dates to circa mid 18th - to very early 19th century is in wonderful all over condition. It sits on a tri - pod base and has very good jaws for retaining the rush.
The iron is in excellent condition with a dark patination to the metal as expected for a piece this age .
It would have been used in a small cottage or dwelling and had a rush soaked in animal fat lit between the jaws, which would give out a dull glow.
An early piece of lighting which is now difficult to find.

As with all of my antiques this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
Period style: Georgian (1714 – 1837)
Dimension: 21.5 CM In Height.
Item location: In the Centre
