Japanese Iron Oil Lamp, Edo Period

Antique iron oil lamp with three legs and hook supporting a leaf shaped vessel with heart shaped holder. Simple, elegant and functional. The aged patina tells all, much used and appreciated. In a contemporary setting, a candle or a flower can easily grace this very wabi-sabi object.

Japanese, Edo period, 19th century.

Measures 7 3/4" tall x 5 3/4 wide x 3 1/2" deep. Hook, 4 1/4" long.
