Randi Ona Antiques
For the past 30 years, early American antiques have been my passion. My focus is on textiles, portraits and silhouettes, lighting, and early artifacts. I am always happy to provide additional information and photos. I hope you will enjoy these items as much as I have. For more pieces from my collections, please visit http://www.onaantiques.com

Late 18th/early 19th century tin pipe or spill holder. Crimped top, drawer, two rows of impressed lines.

This is the most unusual make-do lighting piece I've ever had. The early tin oil lamp is pegged into the case of an old butter stamp. One of a kind piece! Wear as would be expected in a period make-do piece. Dimensions: height 9", diameter of butter print case 3.5".
