Our bronze oil lamps are produced for us in Greece by a well-known family of specialist bronzesmiths, with whom we have been working since 2000. Each piece is individually cast using the lost-wax technique. The method of oxidisation and patination results in a rich combination of texture and colour unique to each piece. There may be the occasional pitting. We have customers who have used the bronze oil lamps with lamp oil and candle wick, but again there may be some leakage, so we would advise against placing the oil lamp on a wooden surface.
