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.
Chase away the Darkness
The modern depictions of loose Roman morals may be exaggerated but they are, nonetheless, based on a true core. Especially the Romans point of view towards erotic, public nudity, coitus and prostitution was pretty open-minded compared to today. So, it does not come as a surprise that images of the naked human form were as widely found as advertisements for brothels and prostitutes. But Romans also enjoyed erotic scenes at home - they loved to decorate the objects of daily use with naughty pictures and relief. The same is true for oil lamps.
Given this particular Roman interest as well as the fact that the piece at hand is modeled after a real archaeological find make the oil lamp at hand 100% authentic.
By making a purchase you not only gain a niece and naughty piece of decoration but also a fully functional Roman oi lamp.
