c.3rd/4th Century A.D. A nice large Roman redware terracotta oil lamp excavated in London. This large and pleasant lamp features embossed annulets around the edge of the upper surface with two large geometric lozenge shaped designs in the center between the filler holes. This item is just one of a number of assorted Roman artefacts excavated from the same site in London c.1939 and hails from an Amateur Archaeologists own private collection amassed during the 1930's and all the items also once formed part of a Museum display as various display signage and labelling accompanied the collection. All items in this particular Roman group were unearthed at a depth of 24 feet below Western Union House, 22 Great Winchester Street, London during re-inforcement work to a basement air raid shelter. The lamp had some professional restoration to the handle and spout shortly after being unearthed but is othetrwise whole and intact and is in nice overall sound condition. Supplied with display stand. A good sized, attractive and nicely provenanced Roman oil lamp from Britains capital, 145mm long x tall x 82mm wide and 55mm high.
