An 18th Century Welsh antique wrought iron grisset pan used to melt mutton fat over the fire.

Rushes would be drawn through it and coated in mutton fat. They were then lit and used as tapers and placed in the jaws of a rushlight to produce light.

This is a must for any rushlight collector!

Provenance - purchased from a sale of Welsh items.

Condition - Please refer to the images. The wrought iron has surface pitting and wear. There is a minor age-related hole and a solder repair to the base of the pan. The pan continues to display well and oozes all the charm of the period which it relates. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size - Length 37 cm x Width of pan 29 cm (14 1/2" x 11 1/2")
