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.

Wine - Staple of Roman Living

Wine is a predominant element of daily Roman Life. You could find this drink everywhere in the empire. Everyone consumed it - even small children as young as five years old were already given wine. But one should not forget that wine in antiquity was far less strong than wine today. It was more or less grape must. Additionally it was almost always stretched with water. Pure wine was seldom consumed. The prominent nature of this drink made the corresponding plants highly popular. That is why one can find depictions of vines and grapes on nearly every object used by Romans. So, it should not come as a surprise that you could also find grapevines and grapes on an oil lamp.

It was a very popular motif for a great many things!

Upon receiving the oil lamp at hand is ready for use. But you should only use vegetable oils as fuel. Modern lamp oils will destroy the lamp within mere minutes and impose a grave fire hazard on the surrounding area. Olive oil has tested very well and is very authentic.
