GREAT 18th C WROUGHT IRON RUSHLIGHT CANDLEHOLDER PRIMITIVE IRON LIGHTING AAFA NR

Description:

Wonderful 18th Century Rushlight - Complete with Lathe Turned Wooden Base and a Candlecup Candleholder!

One of the nicest examples of a period rushlight we've had in some time, and one that's been in the focal point of an early collection of American Primitives.

Dating from the last quarter of the 18th century, this circa 1770-1790 rushlight exhibits great character in the blacksmith formed design. As you can see the maker worked in a 'ram's horn' formation to the ends of the rush holder, as well as creating a great candlecup, and even placing the subtle elements of twist designs on both the arm and center shaft.

Please take a moment to click the individual images and you'll see you can produce enlargements that show the the detail of this great early lighting device!

You'll also see the piece retains its original turned wooden base, equally of good character, and with a nice patina.

The rushlight stands approximately 9 1/2" tall with a base diameter of 3 1/2".

Similar to examples illustrated in numerous volumes on the topic of early lighting and period American antiques.

Certain to be a highlight of any Colonial/Country decorum or collection.

We are pleased to be able to offer this splendid example of early American lighting on a one week, sale.

Thanks for visiting us here at Foxrun-Farms, now in our 14th year on !
