Rare Ancient Hawaii Kukui Nut Lamp - Superbly Formed & Unusual Size - No Reserve For Sale

Rare Ancient Hawaii Kukui Nut Lamp - Superbly Formed & Unusual Size - No Reserve

RARE ANCIENT Hawaii Kukui Nut Lamp - Superbly Formed & Unusual Size -

This is one of the finest crafted Kukui Nut Oil Lamps we've ever encountered. This fantastic Hawaiian Artifact was found at Waipio Valley, Oahu in the 1930's. The size is quite unusual and would make a fantastic addition to any collection. Due to the lamps small size it was most likely a hand held version used in a similar way to how we would use a candle or flash light today making this example extremely RARE!


  • About Poho Kukui Stone Lamps (Arts and Crafts of Hawaii by Sir Peter Buck):"Brigham states that kukui or kamani oil was used in stone mortars, with a wick made of tapa and that the light was increased by adding more wicks. The term stone mortars has been used loosely to include a great number of hollowed stone receptacles, many of which were never made for use as mortars. The Bishop Museum has 201 stone receptacles which have been cataloged as stone lamps. Many have definite information as to their use as lamps and many have the inner edge stained black with burnt carbon. From such authenticated specimens, it is possible to identify others.Stone lamps were of various size, weights, and shapes with no established single pattern. With few exceptions, they were made of easily worked vesicular basalt and some were natural pieces of rock of convenient size which were made into lamps by pecking out a circular hollow on the upper surface."
