Gloria N. Greenwald Antiques & Folk Art

Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.567.2791 | gloriagreenwald@gmail.com

We have been dealing in early 18th & 19th century country antiques and folk art since 1989. The major Americana antique shows of the Northeast were a focus for many years. Having retired from the show circuit in 2006, we now concentrate on selling privately and online. We deal primarily in country smalls including painted boxes and bowls, lighting, iron and tinware, and baskets. We look for makers who understood form and function, even when handcrafting rather primitive objects. Our preference is for pieces that please the eye AND perform a function.

19th c., Crimped Hood Candle Lantern

A country tinsmith crafted tin candle lantern with a crimped hood, and crimped drip tray. The sconce is unique in that it was fashioned from one sheet of tin, with a candle cup cleated through the bottom. Observe the crimping, how unsymmetrical it is in spacing and height, a sign of age and hand craftsmanship. The sides are neatly folded over for strength, along with parallel tracks on the interior, also to give added strength. This has always been a single candle sconce, not part of a pair. It is in very good antique condition, with a nice patina. 10 1/2" h x 4 1/2" w. Additional photos are available.
