An large and exceptional bronze oil lamp with handle in shape of a leaf and pyramid-shaped, pierced lid. Byzantine, 5th - 6th century A.D.

The lamp is finely engraved and well built. A substantial and very elegant bronze lap with beautifully patinated surfaces. Interestingly, an openwork lid was chosen for it in antiquity, perhaps since it became to hot with a closed tight lid, due to the large size and construction.

Size: c. 16,5 cm. long and 6,4 cm. tall.

Condition: Superb, really. Intact with Black and redbrown patina, wick remnants inside.

Provenance: Collection R.M. Reinland, Germany 1960-2012 and thereafter part of stock of Antiken-Kabinett Gackstätter, in Frankfurt Am Main.
