7876. RARE BRITISH LAMP WITH THREE FIGURE EROTIC SCENE. Roman Britain, 2nd century AD. A good-sized lamp, robustly made, in creme ware with spatulate nozzle, pierced and grooved fin handle, and slight traces of dark brown slip. Around discus, a border of double zigzags. Scene shows woman, head turned facing, bending over a bed or overturned chair, her partner bending forward behind her, with his hand to his mouth (in a silencing gesture?). Below, on floor, another male figure is sprawled out in exhaustion. Cf. BMC 1496, for style. Minor repair to nozzle, with lamp showing moderate wear -- otherwise intact. Length: 4-5/8". Interesting and rare.
