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.

Oil lamps of terra sigillata - porcelain of the Romans

A small piece of contemporary history and yet impressive testimony of the Roman imperial period. Exciting and inspiring for pupils and history fans of all ages. These findings of basic objects testify the habits of the people of ancient Rome. Such utensils, like vessels, figures and oil lamps, were predominantly made of terra sigillata, which is a material made of clay. It was also called "Porcelain of the Romans". Objects made from terra sigillata were distinguished through the strong, red color, their shine and their durability, which were produced through a special burning process.

Oil lamp Gladiator - a special kind of ancient light source

Oil lamps were an essential part of the Roman daily life. They were available in almost unlimited forms, from simple but functional forms to elaborately processed and decorated products. Thus they were affordable for all classes of society and were produced in large numbers. The forms and motifs of these light sources were particularly imaginative. Thus, themes such as gods, hunting, erotism or fighting scenes were often used. Such figures were usually engraved or created in a relief-like manner. The offered oil lamp Gladiator is a particularly exceptional replica of terra sigillata and made according to an original. The Gladiator theme is presented purely figurally, with much attention to detail, such as the short sword, textile arm guard and the Attic Boeotian helmet. There are openings for wick and oil located on the front and back. The lamp can be operated with conventional lamp oil.
