Roman Lamp #1
£75 + P&P
A beautifully decorated ceramic oil lamp dating from the 3rd - 4th centuries A.D.
The lamp is discoid in plan with a lug handle and stub nozzle. The lamp has been decorated with incised concentric rings to the base and well defined, high profile bunches of grapes to the shoulders. The hole in the nozzle is sharp and unstained, suggesting that the lamp may never have been used.
At c. 9cm in length, the lamp is supplied with a bespoke oak plinth.
Acquired by Timeless on the UK antiquities market, 2019. Prior to that, forming part of a private London based collection - 1990 - 2000.

An enigmatic terracotta lamp dating from the very end of the Roman Empire, 4th - 5th centuries A.D.
