The remaining objects are those that are more difficult to locate in our stores; the title of the project is currently very apt. One object that we recently found is an excellent Roman lamp stand thought to have been found in London.
|Roman lamp-stand (1884.116.95 .1-3).|
|The shaft is spirally-fluted and has a cat / weasel attached to the lower section.|
|Above the cat / weasel is a cockerel; the detailing on this ornament is particularly fine.|
|The feet of the tripod are lion feet and each has a bird attached.|
|The dish-top is square with a circular indent for holding the oil. A hole has been drilled through the middle to attach it to the main shaft, it is likely that this hole was created during restoration and is not an original feature.|
