I am looking at lamps in 13th to 14th century manuscripts. They seem
to be hanging by chains from the ceiling. They seem to be bowl-shaped,
with a base.
And that is all I can tell. What are they made of? Ceramic? Glass?
Where is the flame? Does it hang off the side? Reflect off the
ceiling? How many wicks, and what keeps them above oil level? I can't
see any of this, and I haven't been able to find any websites that
tell me. Are there any extant examples from about 1300 near Barcelona
in museums somewhere??
