Fine 18th C Antique American Iron Rush Light Rushlight Early Lighting Aafa For Sale
a collection of early lighting assembled throughout New England over
three decades ago, this is an outstanding example of an original
colonial period American rushlight. Dating
from the early to mid 18th century, this 1730-1770 example exhibits a
wonderful representation of New England period wrought iron manufacture
coupled with a lovely base in a superb patina. Please
take a moment click on the enlarge option below each image, and you'll
find you can produce enlargements that help to showcase wonderful
original condition and form. Of
particular note to the formation of the wrought iron elements was
making the formation of the counter balance arm to include a formed
socketed cup; allowing the owner to additionally capitalize on having
the device hold wax and tallow candles. Fully
intact, and near fine original condition. Beautiful 250+ year old
lighting device exhibits only the slightest oxidation to the iron with
some expected occasional wear to the base. Truly
one of the nicest examples from the private collection it was acquired
