An amazing wrought iron four spout crusie lamp aficked on top of a rod with a heavy carved wooden base circa 1680 - 1780. The grease pan is attached with four twisted supports. These lamps could burn up to four wicks at the same time for greater light output. These lamps were typically hung by chain from mantles etc. This is a very fine example of early American lighting which demonstrates the craftsmanship of early blacksmiths. This table top lamp has minor pitting and surface oxidation. "J.L. Carey" stamped into the base 4 times. This is a rather unusual design, I have not seen another quite like it. A must have for any early lighting collection. 17-1/2"H with a 7" diameter base.
