Die Lampe muß im betriebsbereiten, brennenden und gelöschten Zustand unbedingt außerhalb der Reichweite von Kindern gehalten werden. In der Vergangenheit sind mehrfach Todesfälle und schwere Lungenverletzungen bei Kindern bundesweit registriert worden, welche Lampenöl getrunken oder an den Dochten gesaugt haben. Synthetische Lampenöle, welche im Handel erhältlich sind, führen beim Einatmen, was bei Verschlucken oder Ausspucken leicht passieren kann, schon in kleinsten Mengen zu starken bis tödlichen Vergiftungen der Lunge. Da es bei historischen Lampen keine Möglichkeit gibt, eine Kindersicherung nach DIN 14059 herzustellen, möchten wir unsere Kunden auf ihre Aufsichtspflicht hinweisen.Um die Lebensgefahr für Kinder auszuschließen, empfehlen wir den Betrieb der Lampen mit Speiseölen. Getestet und für geeignet befunden wurden folgende Öle: Sonnenblumenöl, Olivenöl, Nussöl und Rapsöl.

Roman History for your Home

Romans were not only a force to reckoned with on land but also at sea. Many great seafarers could be found among the people of this proud ancient superpower. Seamen could be, just like today, venture out the ocean under military order or on civil behalf, for example fishermen. Everything coming out of the sea was highly valued by the Romans people. Especially the fish and other critters. Fish were brought from the shores to the cities in large water tanks, so they would not spoil while on their way. That caused high prices for many fish and transformed them into luxury items and delicacies. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that you would also find depictions of the creatures of the sea on objects of daily life such as lamps and more.

Lamps decorated like that were mostly used by fishermen or fishmongers. But also private citizens used them from time to time.
If you too feel a special bind to the sea and its inhabitants and enjoy antiquity as well, then do not hesitate and become the owner of this oil lamp today! Facts and Details
