Maltese Two-Wick Lamp

inscription:  Model of Maltese two-wick lamp (circa 600 B.C.) found in Rock Tombs, Malta. Rd. No. 562738

diameter:  80mm

matching arms:  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.
