18th Century Lighting Support Hook with Great Designs

All hand wrought, blacksmith made, this period lighting holder dates from the mid to late 18th century, circa 1750-1790.

Spikes such as this would have been hammered into the wall and beams of early homes for the purpose of supporting a grease (betty) lamp, lantern or other lighting device via the bottom support hook.

As you can see the blacksmith who originally made the piece worked in some great decorative elements, the face of the piece having whimsical curled designs and even a center heart shape.

Measures 6 3/4" in length.


Take a moment to click on the photographs and you'll see you can produce enlargements that help highlight the original design and construction. Overall the piece is in very good+ condition with some slight age pitting and corrosion. I chose not to clean the piece as the blackened surface gives a great rustic appeal.

Sure to be a valued addition to any period home decor or as a means to accent and display any lighting collection. Offered for a period of five days with ! Thanks for visiting Foxrun-Farms!
