Item Details


More details about this item

This is a very clever use for an antique Pennsylvania Dutch butter mold! Based on the wiring and style, I'd guess this was converted to a sconce in the 1920s, with the addition of wiring and a hand-forged cast iron sleeve and candle/light cup, as well as hand-forged cast iron hinges and plates. The butter mold itself is a classic Pennsylvania dutch tulip motif, which is lovely on its own, and would make a great primitive display piece. Or, you could leave it as is, get it re-wired (for safety), add an electric "candle", and use it as an electric sconce. I will leave it to the buyer to decide what they want to do with it. An absolutely wonderful find! Unsure of maker. From the late 1800s - early 1900s. This is old, worn, well-used, and the very definition of primitiveโ€”but with some careful restoration/re-wiring, could be lighting your wall, PDQ! 11 3/4" long x 6" tall x 5" wide.
