This wrought-iron night-light, or veilleuse, in the form of a bat, dates to the 1930's and is on display in the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen. According to information provided by the wrought-iron museum, the decorative form harkens back to olden days when superstitious ancestors would nail a bat on a barn to ward off bad luck.
