Most pan lamps were made of forged iron but here we have a rarely found brass example. This hanging pan lamp has an original wick channel that is usually found in Betty lamps. This indicates to me that it is a transition piece between the traditional pan lamp and the Betty lamp. The wick channel would have enabled use of a formed wick to draw the whale oil that was kept warm and fluid by the brass wick holder. The hanging height is 10 1/2”, and the pan is 2 3/8" x 3 3/4". This lamp dates to the 18th century. A rare find.

EARLY RARE BRASS WAX JACK W/ HEARTS, 18TH-19TH C.

Offered is a English brass wax jack for recoiled tapers. Wax jacks were used from early in the 17th century to seal letters with a pool of melted wax . The coil of wax would have been wound around the post and the end fed though the taper holder. For use, the flame from a candle would have been held to the end of the taper until a drop of melted wax fell onto the envelope. At the time it was customary for the writer to impress his personal seal into the wax. Measurements are 5” tall with a 3 1/4” diameter base. The base is decorated with cutout hearts. It is in very good condition with no issues and dates to the late 18th - early 19th C. A similar example can be found in "Making Fire & Light in the Home, pre-1820" by John Caspall. Not too commonly found.
