Single flame Roman oil lamp in fish shape
Light like in ancient Rome
Oil lamps were used daily in ancient times and were an important source of light for thousands of years. The fuel used was olive oil, which was abundant in the Mediterranean region. The uncomplicated handling, the long burning time and the wonderful light ambience speak for themselves. Of course, our oil lamp can also be filled with cooking or olive oil. Tip: Place your oil lamp on a heat-resistant surface.
Single-lamp oil lamp - Antique design
This oil lamp is a handmade replica of a find from the National Archaeological Museum of Perugia. Two Christian symbols adorn the left and right sides of the elongated fish, respectively. The fish could be a sturgeon, its mouth is open and shows a part of a swallowed fish, which serves as a burning hole. The special design and the production from a special engobe give the lamp its own character. Not only fans of antique ceramics will make eyes at the sight of this unusual oil lamp.

Traditional handmade production
This oil lamp is, as once its antique model also, made of two-part molds, covered with an engobe and fired at high temperature. The high firing temperature ensures that the lamps are generally tight. The inside of the lamp is glazed to protect it from heat, but it can happen that oil is drawn out over the "lamp nose" and runs down the lamp. For safety's sake, a heat-resistant coaster should be placed under the oil lamp.
Light accents for indoors and outdoors
With this oil lamp you can set accents in any place in the house. But also outside when barbecuing in the garden or celebrating on the terrace it creates the right mood. But never leave the oil lamps burning unattended!
