Item Details

Information:

  • Material: Iron


4 lbs 4 oz   I was told this was a standing Cressett an early form of lighting. A resonous knot of wood would be set on top and burned for light. Used in meeting places and hearth openings.
30" Inches tall  11 " Wide at base.  You can see where the iron was hammered together and riveted. It also was finished with rivets. 
 This will make a good collector piece.It has a beatiful rusted patina. One of a kind.
One of the hooks broke off a long long time ago. This piece probably dates 1700`s. Used in the Colonies or maybe Spanish.
