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.
Biblical light for your home
Everyone who read the bible in whole or in parts will know that the primary used form of lightning in this book are in fact oil lamps. Oil lamps in general were very popular during the Antiquity and remained popular for many thousand years after. Also the very first Christians used them. Including Jesus Christ himself.
If you too want to experience what it was like to light a room during the early days of Christianity then this is the lamp for you! It will suit all your needs and you will experience first hand what it meant to lighten up your house 2000 years ago.
You can use this lamp as soon as you get it. All you need is some kind of vegetable oil. Modern petroleum oils burn too hot for a clay lamp and will probably destroy it. So we advice to refrain from using such agents.
