An attractive and fine example of an ancient Late Roman Christian oil lamp, dating to the 5th - 6th Century A.D. originating from the Holy land.

Lamps such as this were filled with olive oil in ancient times and lit by means of a thick wick, which protruded from the nozzle end. The flickering light of the oil lamp has been man's only means of illuminating the darkness for millennia, long before gas-lamps and modern electricity.

Length:3 3/4 inches.

Condition: Very good. Minor chips, as shown.

Provenance:

Ex Israeli private collection. Legally exported from Israel and likely found in Northern Israel.

Please note: This isa genuine ancient oil lamp. This piece is offered for sale without reserve to promote our extensive inventory of shipwreck salvaged ceramics, antiquities and ancient coins.
