Already in ancient times, oil lamps made of red clay were a ubiquitous source of light. This lamp under the category of pottery and ceramics is particularly distinguished by its simple nature and by the seven holes in which wicks from the center of the vessel by means of cooking or olive oil, or even conventional lamp oil, immerse the room or the convivial round on the porch in a warm, natural light. Far more durable than candles and also drip-free are the oil lamps according to ancient models.
All oil lamps on the Roman store pages of Forum Traiani are unique, because they are made by hand according to traditional models. They are hardened in the kiln at up to 1000 degrees Celsius and after the drying phase they receive an engobe glaze, which by means of a special antique clay slip makes the lamp body shine wonderfully red and also gives its surface a shine. For protection, all lamps are glazed inside.
This is just one of the wide variety of oil lamps that you can discover and learn to love on these pages. The lamps are also very individual gifts for any fan of fancy lighting and, of course, for lovers of antique art and objects. Look around among the various illuminants, there is something for everyone!
