Oil lamps Warning
The lamp must be kept out of the reach of children when it is ready for operation, burning and extinguished. In the past, several deaths and serious lung injuries have been recorded nationwide in children who have drunk lamp oil or sucked on the wicks. Synthetic lamp oils, which are commercially available, cause severe to fatal poisoning of the lungs when inhaled, which can easily happen if swallowed or spat out, even in the smallest quantities. As there is no possibility to produce a child safety lock according to DIN 14059 for historical lamps, we would like to point out to our customers that they have to be supervised. The following oils have been tested and found suitable: sunflower oil, olive oil, nut oil and rapeseed oil.
A light for private Moments
The old Romans were a very open-minded people. Especially when it came to erotic matters. Most of them did not mind being exposed to nudity or explicit drawings and pictures. Thus, you can find a lot of erotic decorations and patterns on many objects of daily Roman life. You would most certainly not find the same decoration on today's daily objects...the paintings could sometimes be extremely graphic and only left small room for imagination. Although the object at hand is all in all rather tame in this regard.
Should you want to experience something that was completely normal for nearly every ancient Roman citizen but is not normal today, then this oil lamp is just the right object for you to have! Owning of those oil lamps will greatly add to your collection and make it all in all more versatile.
