CFA 6590 - 18th Century Rush Nips/Light

In stock

£395.00

An 18th century Georgian wrought iron four legged rush nip/light with candle holder.

Interesting fact: These were made in the 17th/18th centuries for those who could not afford a candle. A cheap alternative was a rushlight made from a rush dipped in grease, or a burning splinter of wood. These were held pinched in a nip like pliers or tongs on a stand. They could be combined with a candle-holder for people who used both kinds of light, depending on their needs and budget at different times.

Dimensions: Height: 12"

Price: £395
