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.

Gladiators - The Sport Stars of ancient Rome

Sports were just as popular in ancient Rome as they are today. This fact did not change over the years. The only thing that changed are the sports played. You will hardly come across two or more people anymore, that fight each other to the death or battly against wild animals just to please a crowd. Those vile traditions have long since passed. Nevertheless, gladiators are still kept in high regard by many fans of antiquity. Just as many original Romans did also keep them in high regard. Therefore, it does not come as a surprise that you would find images of those Sport Stars on normal objects like oil lamps. They actually were often sold after a public fight took place in the arena - as a kind of souvenir.

The oil lamp at hand is ready to use upon receiving. But you should not just use any oil to light it with! This can be potentially dangerous. You should only use vegetable oils. Preferably olive oil - this will also be the most authentic, due to the fact that the Romans used it too.

But you don't have to use it, if you want to keep it neat and clean. It also makes for a great piece of decoration even without giving in to its purpose.
