19th Century Hogscraper Pushup Candlestick

A nice 19th century 7" tall sheet iron hogscraper. The tab moves smoothly and the chair hanging tab remains. These sturdy candlesticks were used throughout the first half of the 19th century. Hung from the back of a high backed chair, they cast light over the sitter's shoulder to aid in reading or guide the nimble fingers of a lady working at her needlework. The name "hogscraper" comes from the similarity in shape to a sheet iron tool make for scraping the bristles off of a newly butchered hog.
