Hamish is a Scottish wrought iron Cruisie oil lamp also know as a whale oil lamp

A blacksmith handmade handmade in wrought iron with folk style punch work decoration. He has a twisted hanging hook down to a revolving attachment located at the top of the oil lamp bracket.

Hamish was used by being suspended from a wall, or beam to provide a movable and swinging additional light source. Used in the Scottish Highlands coasts and Islands, as the cost and availability of fuels and candles was limited. The use of oil from fish and whales in coastal districts was no uncommon..

He has rust and patina throughout which add to his used rustic antique charm

Today use Hamish with teal lights for a subtle hanging mood lighting

Date late 18th to early 19th century
