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.
Zodiac Signs - Popular then and nowThe Romans also knew of zodiac signs and viewed them equally like we do today. Some thought them to be defining elements of our characters, others thought them to be nothing but make-believe. But be that as it may, the oil lamp at hand depicts the zodiac sign 'Cancer'. Therefore, it makes for a great present for any person that not only was born under this sign but also believes in it or is a avid fan of Roman history. Furthermore, the lamp at hand is fully functional. It is not only valid as a piece of decoration but can also serve as a means of lighting a room or as a source of outdoor lighting. It's especially valuable during outside BBQ or camping trips.
But be aware that it is only to be used with vegetable oil. Modern lamp oils and fuels will not only destroy the clay made lamp but also pose an enormous fire hazard. So beware and only use the fuels recommended. Facts and Data
