1. Q. " I
am using the oil lamp for the first
time. I am a little worried. Is it
A. For over 15,000 years people have
been using oil lamps. There really isn't
anything to worry about. Look at our
instructions of use and you will see, as
demonstrated in the pictures, there are
just a few easy steps. Follow these
steps and your oil lamp will work, and
work safely. Olive oil, like all
vegetable oils, is safe burning and will
never cause the lamp to explode. Do not use paraffin oils, however. All of
the oil lamps in the Epalladio
Collection are made of high-fired
stoneware clay which prevents leakage.
Each lamp has a special place for the
wick so that the flame remains safe and
functional. As with all open flames,
they must be kept in safe places and out
of the reach of children.

create a harmonious atmosphere in just

lamps from museums around the world. The attention

been made so many centuries before. With a deep
respect for tradition we have combined
the ancient ways of living with modern day
standards of performance.
