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 real piece of Art and History
This oil lamp is not just any oil lamp. It is a very detailed recreation of a real archaeological find made near the German town of Trier. In antiquity Trier used to be a big Roman settlement. Finds from this area are therefore rather frequent. Nevertheless, this replica is made with great love to details. The face of the Roman God Bacchus, which is the most prominent feature of this lamp, is very detailed and seems vivid. But also the rest of the lamp is nicely manufactured and neatly done. You will have a hard time telling it apart from the real deal. Additionally to that, it is ready to use as soon as you get it. You just need to fill in some vegetable oil and light the wick. You will feel like a real Roman withing seconds.
