RUSHLIGHT HOLDER

rushlight holder

exhibition number: Cottage 10

There are various designs of rushlight holder. Most have a pincer-like top which grips the rushlight at any angle and anywhere along its length. Some have a piece of sprung steel that makes the grip tighter, but most depend on the weight of the moveable arm to do this. Some have wooden bases, others have wrought iron or cast iron bases.

They would have been made by a blacksmith and are generally very elegant.
