Rare 17th 18th Century C Wrought Iron Lighting Cresset Early Lighting Antique. A rare piece of early lighting illustrated in numerous reference books on lighting and early wrought iron. Dating From the Mid 17th to Mid 18th Century, this is a lovely representation of early lighting in great original form and presentation. The cresset served as a platform for which to place dried pine knots or oil soaked material to be burned for illumination. All hand wrought, blacksmith made with nice attention to detail including four’rams horn’ designs featured on four areas of the piece. Measures 5 1/2″ in diameter, length of the spike is 7 1/2″.
