Cast Iron Betty Lamp Holder    Cast Iron Betty Lamp Holder
 
Cast iron betty lamp holder in the form of a bird. The pointed end of this piece would have been driven into a beam or a wooden wall and the grease lamp suspended from the hook under the bird. The piece probably dates to the 18th or early 19th century and remains in excellent original condition. It is shown in a hand-made holder to simulate the manner in which it would have been used. 8" L. (CI - 9)
 
$290 ($20 extra with holder)
