Roman North African Redware Oil Lamp w/ Wolf
Item Details
Description
Roman, North Africa, late Imperial Period, ca. 4th to mid-5th century CE. A beautiful mold-formed redware pottery oil lamp depicting a running wolf flanked by petite fill holes within the recessed tondo. The form of the lamp is defined by a squat foot, smooth walls, a tab-shaped handle, a circular shoulder exhibiting raised horseshoe and delta-form motifs, and a recessed neck channel leading to a wide wick spout. The striding wolf exhibits a smooth coat, a right-facing head with perky ears and a gaping mouth, and a bushy tail billowing off the posterior. A slender iron fragment is visible within one fill hole. Size: 5.3" L x 3.2" W x 2.2" H (13.5 cm x 8.1 cm x 5.6 cm)

Provenance: East Coast collection, New York Gallery, New York City, New York, USA, acquired before 2010
