RARE EARLY 18TH CENTURY RUSH HOLDER

Rare and unusual rush holder. This wrought iron holder has the initials IC at the rush end. The spike end has spurs. when it is stuck into the beam or mantle it cannot come out. I think that the spike can be pounded into the beam either standing straight up or sideways. The curled handle when pressed together opens and closes the horizontal piece which holds the rush. It measures 9 inches in length.

18th - 19th C Wrought Iron Betty Lamp Fat Lamp

These early lamps called Betty or Fat lamp burned grease from the kitchen like mutton, or poultry fat which was readily available. These lamps were popular especially in rural areas for many years. When lit via twisted cotton or hemp laid in the spout and they burned with a small flame sufficient to read or write. This lamp is in very good condition with a long piece of twisted cotton to get you started! This lamp was de-assessed from a museum thus the numbers on the arm.

SMALL SIGNED SPLINT PAINTED BASKET

I am not sure which it is but it is either a Shaker or Taconic basket. The basket has a fixed handle, double wrapped double rim and a kicked in bottom. On the handle at the top is incised A F. The basket has some damage around the bottom which I hope shows in the second photo. I believe the basket is painted brown which is evident because of the wear on the handle and on the wrap around the edge. The basket is 4 inches in height and 6 inches across the top.

Price: SOLD THANK YOU!
