Lovely Package® reader Abdul who is an editor over at UK based designduct.com, alerted us to this great article on Ancient Roman oil lamp branding. Below is a short excerpt from the article which can be read in it’s entirety over at Discovery.

“Firmalampen, or “factory lamps,” were one of the first mass-produced goods in Roman times and they carried brand names clearly stamped on their clay bottoms.
