Early Lighting

Antique Tin Grease Lamp with Decorative Backplate
  • An interesting piece of early lighting, some might call it a Betty Lamp, because it does have a lid.  But, I prefer to call it a standing pan lamp, or grease lamp.  It is made of tin, with a crimped tin lid and a backplate with rollded tin edges, a stamped tin circular design which surrounds a stamped sheet brass medallion.  It measures 5 3/4" tall x 4" from spout to back.  Circa first half of the 19th century.
