I in herited these from my grandparents. I have always been infatuated with Egyption history and so this was my pick from their Estate. I have had them with the authenticity papers scince 2001. They stay n my closet not on display so I thought this would be a good way to show them off and maybe get some info regarding value or more history? My grandfather collected lights and lamps, I guess these were no exception. He told me that the Egyptions would use whale oil/blubber as fuel for them, but I don't know what the wick material was or if they were common or not. One has a hole in the handle (for hanging?) Anyway, what do you think?
