Description
This bronze lamp is in the form of a youth with upswept hair, perhaps a satyr, seated on a low circular base and holding the spout with both hands before him. He wears an animal skin tied around his neck, the tuft tail curving out and resting on his back to form the ring-handle, and a Phrygian cap hinged to form the lid for the fitting-hole, the upward-curving tapering spout emerging from a calyx. Cf. Musee Rolin, Bronzes Figures Antiques, no. 96. - (LA.547)
