This is attached to a wall on my cabin. It’s about 6 feet from the floor. Approximately 3 inches high. Cabin was built in 1880 by a bunch of lumberjacks/loggers. Thoughts on what it is?

Looks like a menorah to me. Is it near the door? Has a scroll inside with a Bible verse and you touch it whenever you leave home and remember that God watched over you

bracket for a swing-arm lamp mount. Kerosene. Unusually clean – I often see them with maaaaany coats of paint.

There were swing arm oil lamps that were removable for cleaning. That is the base holder for one

Wow never seen an oil lamp holder so elaborate. Lucky you

Melissa said:
I would think a mezuzah would have more Hebraic decorations on it. I think it’s probably more likely to be a light bracket of some sort.

Debbie said:

if there are antique shops near your cabin, you could probably find an appropriate lamp or lantern! Good luck!

One of the positive commandments in Torah (Hebrew books of law) also found in Christian Bibles in Deuteronomy 6:9… says you shall write the law upon your doors post… inside that is a capsule with a tiny segment of Torah.

I remind people that when showing an item, it is important to add something for size comparison. A playing card, or something similar would have made people more easily determine whether this was small like a mezuzah, or bigger like the oil lamp holder.

Kitty said:
I want all these beautiful oil lamps wow. I do need some of these in my life. I have nine old oil lamps. I’ve been afraid to use for years because of my nosy little Persian cat. She can climb to the top of the refrigerator in a heartbeat. And seems fascinated with the flame. This could have been put on a single bare wall. Glad it was identified.
