Oil lamp

Antien and I discovered this simple but gorgeous oil lamp on an antique hunting trip through the North of the Province of Friesland in 1964. It was hanging above a kitchen table in a farm in one of the villages NE of Leeuwarden. The owner was happy to part with it for a mere 50 Dutch Guilders. We thought we had a bargain, so did the farmer so we parted all in a happy mood. The tell tale sign of a good and honest transaction.
