Early 19th Century Glass Peg Lamp with Brass Candlestick Base
A beautiful circa 1820 glass whale oil peg lamp with an 18th century brass candlestick that are both in excellent condition. Peg lamps were invented to be used with the old candlesticks for those who didn't want to or couldn't afford to buy the new oil lamps that were much better than candle light. This gorgeous glass peg lamp is perfect and looks wonderful in its candlestick that is included in the price of this early piece of lighting. It is 11.5" tall overall with the glass peg lamp 5" tall and the candlestick 6.5" tall.
