Ancient Roman Oil Lamps

We carry a wide range of genuine Roman terracotta oil lamps, ideal for collectors of ancient Roman pottery. Our prices are very competitive, considering these are genuine antiquities with certification and not the replica Roman oil lamps you see for sale across the internet. A precursor to the transformative lightbulb, terracotta oil lamps were used across the Holy Land, Greek World, Ancient Rome and Byzantium. Early antique oil lamps were undecorated and served a singular practical function. As tastes developed and skills of craftsmanship advanced, oil lamps provided another medium for artistic expression. Scenes from Roman and Greek mythology and Christian Byzantine symbols all featured as popular decoration on these ancient pottery lamps.
