Spanish Arab / Islamic Style Oil Lamp

19th Century
Cm 90 high

A highly decorative (and functional) Spanish standing brass oil lamp, in Andalusian Arab or Islamic style. The five abstracted lions that ring the oil reservoir and support the burning wicks are reminiscent of the lion sculptures surrounding the iconic fountain at the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. Hanging from a series of chains are the tools used for maintaining the lamp. There is also an adjustable metal lamp shade used to shade the eyes from the direct flame.
