I found this pewter oil lamp topper at the Solomon Wine Tasting Room in downtown Murphy's. There were several styles to choose from, one being this chicken which I have name "Mr. Rooster" and several pewter flowers.
The instructions suggested using an old wine bottle for the base and filling the bottom with small pebbles and then lamp oil. I found this champagne bottle at a local thrift store which has a heavy metal bottom. It's very secure and seems to be working well; however I'm not sure I like the chicken in this bottle. I'm thinking the pewter rose would have been a better choice, and perhaps I can find something a bit more country for the Mr. Rooster. Perhaps, we'll have to go back to Murphy's and pick up that pewter rose!
