I picked this Wrought Iron Sticking Tommy Miner's Candlestick holder up at an Antique shop  stamped Cleancut on it and I'm looking for more information on it Thanks any little bit of information helps .

 Miners Candle holder that was used by miners to provide their working light.
 Before electric lamps and carbide lamps, candles were used to provide light in some mines for most of the 19th century.
 This candle holder has a spike that would have been driven into a framing timber or suitable crack and a hook that could be set upon an appropriate surface near the minerís work space.

Miners' Candleholders were used predominantly in western hardrock mines and in the copper and iron mines of the Lake Superior Region.
The western candleholders differed from the Lake Superior variety in the type of hook they had, the Lake Superior type were made to be worn on the miner's cap with a tighter radius hook, while the western type was not and had a wider radius hook.

They were used from the 1860s into the early 20th Century.
