20362 Spun Brass Finger Lamp

This little finger lantern stands just 6" high from its 4
1/4" diameter base to the tip of its delicately shaped
glass chimney.  Fashioned from spun sheet brass in the
same fashion as the common brass candlestick of the
Civil War era, (see Philip's Excavated Artifacts from
Battlefields and Campsites of the Civil War) this
example remains in excellent original condition with
only its construction style and rich patina as evidence
of age and originality.  A most eye appealing addition
for the personal item and lighting collector.  $175
