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.
Astonishing Craftsmanship for your Home
Gladiators as well as arena battles were hughly popular during Roman antiquity. This is a widely known fact. Inspite of this being common knowledge many people tend to underestimate how far the love of these sport stars went. Some hardcore fans decorated their whole houses with memorabilia of certain gladiators and arena battle - not unlike hardcore sport fans today do. So, it does not come as a surprise that you would find an oil lamp modeled after a typical gladiator's helmet. Lamps like that used to be sold right after arena battles as souvenirs. The lamp at hand is modeled after a real archaeological find.
Should you not only be interested in Roman history but also in the history of sports or sports in general then this is just the lamp for you! It also makes for a great present.
