An old Light for new Homes
Being able to light a room at night is very important. It provides a sense of security as well as the ability to see in the absence of natural sun light. Due to that fact people learned far how to artificially create a source of light. Oil lamps were one of those sources. They were particularly popular during Roman antiquity and were found all over the Mediterranean area. In some countries they remained popular for several thousand years. Some nomads in the Arabian deserts still use them today!
If you too want to experience what it meant like to only have an oil lamp to light a room with then this is the object for you to have! Every history-geek's dream! Or is there anything finer that reading the ancient poets and philosophers in the glow of a authentic roman oil lamp?
You can use this lamp with any kind of vegetable oil. Modern lighter fluid and the like burns to hot for the clay.
