Fire hazards aside, here is a page of a location that sells reproductions of oil lamps.

I'm not certain whether we would be better served with the '1-2nd century celtic/gaulic' styles, or, the '5th century' Roman/Byzantium style from africa.
One is from the wrong time period, the other the wrong region...in any case, it might be of interest to clann folks!

I visted the web site for the lamps they looked pretty cool. Maybe someone could tell us which one would be the most appropriate for our time period.

As far as Volunds question and those neato oil lamps ... go for the late Roman / Britian lamps or Late Roman Empire
