Kon Tiki Lamp

Unidentified Kon Tiki Lamp

This brass object, with a design similar to the sun god on the sail of Thor Heyerdahl’s raft the Kon Tiki, may be a candle holder or a broken oil lamp. When I found it at a thrift store, it center tube was partially filled with candle wax. However, this object does not appear to be well-suited for a life as a candle holder. With no manufacturer marks on it, I am unable to identify it.

Please note the similarity between this object and the Otagiri Kon Tiki mug.

Found in the Tiki Collection.
