Traditional cast brass oil or butter lamps with a contemporary expression, designed to last a lifetime and with a beautiful patina over time.
The Buenos Diyas is an oil lamp with a cotton wick dipped in vegetable oils.
Mix the two different sizes for a warm and inviting setting.
Each set includes around 50 wicks. For the small sets you could easily cut in half to make 100 wicks.
The oil is not included, but typically (in India) vegetable cooking oil is used, sunflower oil recommended.
Use: place the wick so that it sticks outside approx 1 cm and fill the oil lamp with 3/4 vegetable oil. Lit and enjoy the cozy light.
set of 4 small: D60x50 mm, H28mm
set of 2 large: D75x65mm, H35mm
set of extra wicks: +/- 280 cotton wicks (560 for the small ones)
Care: We find beauty in the marks of unique character, subtle variations of grain, figure, and texture inherent in materials that deepen through use and patinate over time.
Brass: The diyas can be semi-regularly polished with any brass cleaning agent to recover its original shiny gold look. However, we recommend it be left to age naturally.
