Roman Leaded Bronze Oil Lamp

Lot 0031 Details

Description
**First Time At Auction**

Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. A cast-leaded-bronze oil lamp of a broad form with a generally circular body, a protruding wick spout, and a narrow handle beneath a tall, triangular thumb rest. The open design of the lamp suggests it once had an accompanying lid with a tab that perhaps rested within the lower perforation of the thumb rest and handle. Size: 5.875" W x 2.9" H (14.9 cm x 7.4 cm)

Provenance: private New York, New York, USA collection; ex-estate of Robert Flourance, Virginia, USA, before 2000

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent increases of shipments being seized by Australian & German customs (even for items with pre-UNESCO provenance), we will no longer ship most antiquities and ancient Chinese art to Australia & Germany. For categories of items that are acceptable to ship to Australia or Germany, please contact us directly or work with your local customs brokerage firm.
