Erotic Lamp with Vigorous Love Scene. Roman, 1st-2nd century AD. Central scene has man laying on bed, propped up at the head of the bed. The woman straddles atop him. Artwork of fine style. Lamp pristine and apparently unused, with the slip remaining as a faint red wash. Lamp mold typically worn, so the figural details are a bit soft, but nicely graphic and quite charming. Rarer type. BMC --; Pompeii --. Length: 3-3/8". Attractive.
Estimated Value $700 - 900.

Realized $575
