    Item details

    An Antique Oil Lamp
    Green glazed earthenware pottery 
    Persia (Iran) 
    (Probably Nishapur area)
    17th-19th Century
    Measures: 7.8 cm high
                      11 cm diameter 

    Provenance:
    Oxfordshire collection 

    An attractive and interesting pottery oil lamp, reminiscent of the Nishapur style. The top bowl distinctively pinched to hold a wick in the oil over a lower, integrated saucer bowl with a raised rim with Arabesque detaills, from which is raised an integral, banded, looping strap-handle. The whole covered in a rich green glaze with some craquelure. 

    Similar pieces have been made over a long period of time. This item is dated to the 18th/19th century but could be considerably older.

    Condition:
    Very good. Some age-related craquelure to glaze.
