Buenos Diyas Oil Lamp
These Diyas are traditional cast brass oil or butter lamps with a contemporary expression.
A ‘Diya’ is an oil lamp with a cotton wick dipped in vegetable oils. Case Goods’ Diyas are designed to last a lifetime and will age beautifully over time. Mix the two different sizes for a warm and inviting installation.
Each set includes around 50 wicks that can be cut in half to provide around 100 wicks for the small Diyas.
Material: Cast brass
Dimensions: Small: 50mm x 25mm Large: 68mm x 32mm
Place the wick inside the bowl with approximately 1cm wick sticking out of the bowl. Fill the bowl 3/4 with oil. Light the wick and enjoy the beautiful light. When the oil is gone, replace the wick and repeat.
Oil is not included, but typically (in India) vegetable cooking oil is used. The options vary and include sunflower, sesame, coconut, avocado, mustard and groundnut oils.
Care: The diyas can be semi-regularly polished with any brass cleaning agent to recover its original shiny gold look. However, we recommend to let the brass age naturally.
