Öllampen

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.

A unique Piece for Unique Collectors

To be able to light one's home after nightfall was just as important during antiquity as it is today. Therefore, lamps, especially oil lamps, were very popular in ancient Roman times. They came in all shapes and sizes. Some were just simple and functional and made of clay, other were real pieces of art made only from the most precious metals. The lamp at hand is one of the latter examples. It is entirely made of bronze and shaped as a duck. The bronze used is highly polished giving the lamp itself a nearly golden exterior. Furthermore, the duck lamp is easy to carry should you require it to be moved while lit and filled with oil.
If you two want to experience how the better off Romans used to light their homes at night or if you are a collector of fine an d rare art pieces then this is the object for you!

Despite the fact that it is made from bronze, modern lamp oil still are not valid for use. You should stick with using vegetable oils as fuel - especially olive oil in order to maximize authenticity. Modern lighting fluids can cause the bronze to melt and pose a serious fire hazard.
