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.
Kinky and ArtsyCompared to today's fashion trends the ancient Romans to be somewhat of an acquired taste. Especially concerning their lax handling with nudity. Especially erected penises were shown everywhere. They were even worn as medallions and decorated house fronts. The phallus was a symbol of fertility and strength for our ancestors.
Also idols with massive erected penises could be found everywhere and even were used as children's toys. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that one could also buy oil lamps integrated into an statuette with an erected penis. Something like this would have stood in plain sight in the house or flat of its owner and would not have been considered something naughty or kinky. But instead as something normal. Today this open-mindedness has long since passed.
If you yourself are a kinky fellow or want to surprise someone with a naughty sense of taste then this object might just be the thing you have been looking for.
But also people generally interested in Roman antiquity can't do anything wrong with purchasing this unique piece of decoration. Phallus Facts
