Betty Lamp. This is an old hanging lamp fuelled by oil. Made from Iron. Size 4″ x 3″ x 4″ inches. The hook/spike is 6″ inches.
It has a hinged lid, an inner wick holder and an attached spike/hook, the spike for knocking into timbers or the hook for suspending the lamp. It’s dated to the early to mid 1800s. The Betty lamp is of German origin, I recently purchased this from France.
This lamp has been Black waxed to preserve the Iron.
