This is a very nice example of early lighting. It is an early tin shop lamp that would have burned lard, oil and grease. It dates to around the early 1800’s. This type of light is commonly referred to as the “candlestick form”. It has a wide saucer shape on the bottom and a tin handle with folded over edges. The top removes for cleaning and adjustment of the wick.
It is in very good condition.
The saucer measures approximately 6” in diameter and ¾” deep. The lamp is 7 ¼” high.
