|Title||Oil lamp with bird finial|
|Description||This oil lamp more closely recalls prototypes from Classical antiquity. Round-bodied, with a round filling hole in the top, the lamp has an elongated spout with a spade-shaped termination. Two trefoil-shaped lug handles project from the sides of the body. In back is a vertical, rectangular handle with a small bird sitting on top, both its feet and its tail are attached to the handle itself. The lamp sits on a small ring base, giving it a squat and less-elegant proportion.|
