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.

The Goddess of Luck and Chance

Fortuna is the Roman Goddess of luck an chance. Therefore, she holds one of the most significant positions within the all the Roman deities. Many temples have been erected in her honor all over the empire. And still today people worship this unique and powerful Goddess.
Thus, it should not be surprising that you can find a depiction of her on an oil lamp. Romans mostly were deeply religious people, that always tried to gain favor from their favorite deity. Therefore, they used to decorate their houses and flats with all portraits, idols and pictures of their Gods and Goddesses - even objects of daily life, such as oil lamps, were often graced with depictions of them. Fortuna, like mentioned beforehand, was one of the most influential Goddesses and is hence found on many objects and in many works of art.
