Öllampen Hinweis

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.

Every Romans needs Protection!

Romans were highly superstitious people that believed in a great many of gods and goddesses and prayed for their protection and guidance in matters of the daily life. Craftsmen usually prayed to the goddess Minerva. But she did not solely serve the interests of craftsmen, she also was seen as the goddess of knowledge and sometimes of war. She served many posts, just like all the other Roman gods too.

Many Romans were deeply religious and tried to praise their gods as often as possible. In order to do so, they decorated many of their daily used objects with images of them. You could find them literally everywhere. From jewels over lamps to paintings on walls. Everywhere you looked you could spot a god or a goddess. So, it does not come as a surprise to also find a goddess, in this case Minerva, on a lamp.

The lamp itself is modeled after a real archaeological find dating back to the 1st century A.D. This makes the object at hand all the more authentic and collectible.

The lamp itself is ready to use. Nevertheless, you should refrain from using modern lamp oils. Only vegetable oils are to be used as fuel. Everything else poses a potential danger.
