A reversible candlestick according to a find from Kievan Rus.

$25.24

Description

Decorate your table or altar with a replica of an oil or wax lamp. Use an authentic lighting method for the early medieval period.

The handmade candlestick will serve from both sides. As a stable candleholder for a wax candle or on the other side for oil with a wick.

Our lamps hold relatively little oil, a few tablespoons. These will give you a burn time of about 1.5 hours. We find this a practical solution for weekend trips for medieval camping. It is also a safe option, topping up only the small amount needed to avoid accidental spillage. Basically, you burn off how much you've poured and it eliminates the hassle of figuring out where to put the rest of the oil when packing up for the trip home :)
✓ Tested by reenactors !

You can use any cooking oil, like olive oil and a fabric wick. We use a piece of chorosh mushroom - hoofed tussock as a wick. The wick will burn both from the soft part, which you know as tinder for flinting, and also the leftover cavity of these wood-rotting mushrooms, built up in height.

The lamp is very handy. It will illuminate the table for as long as you need, the oil can be gradually topped up or you can let it burn. The less oil there is, the more the wick burns.

Our lamps are meticulously handcrafted in small quantities by home production. The coarse clay with the blades is dried for several weeks and then goes for firing. The colour can range from creamy light, to beige, grey and brown shades to orange and red. As it is handmade, the dimensions vary from piece to piece. Height and size. The shape and typical features of the find are preserved. We will send the lamp according to our stock. If you have any request, please write to us.

Size approx. 6-10 cm in height and width. 350 - 450 g.
