Cypriot cocked-hat oil lamp (No 2): Early Iron Age (Early-mid first millennium BC)

cocked-hat oil lamp (No 2)

A simple saucer pinched together to contain the wick. A form used for hundreds of years so hard to date, but probably older than my other example.


Size: 12.1 x 10.5 x 3.8cm

(Ex private collection Surrey, UK; acquired from Sotheby’s auction (London) 1960s-80s)

(Aquired Helios Gallery (near Bath, UK))
