Beautiful and specially large Islamic oil lamp in glazed ceramic with incised decoration. Al Andalus, XIII-XIVth century, possibly earlier. The long beak being characteristic of Al Andalus productions, the greyish and orange-coloured glaze were also common from the XIth century and later during the Nasrid dynasty.
Whereas most of the Al-Andalus surviving oil lamps are fragmentary pieces or widely restored, we have here an example in quite a notable condition: the main body and its glaze are intact, the handle being restored, and about one third of the beak too.
Dim.: 18 cm long.
Prov.: Private collection, Sevilla. Private collection, Malaga.
