Maltese Two-Wick Lamp
inscription: Model of Maltese
two-wick lamp (circa 600 B.C.) found in Rock Tombs,
Malta. Rd. No. 562738
Malta; Valletta (Malta)
notes: This model first appeared in the 8th edition of The Goss Record where it was illustrated and listed as a new shape, though it was registered in 1910. Its gilding seems to be particularly prone to rubbing for some reason and is quite often in poor condition.
