Fascinating ... a mood-setting nautical lamp safe & convenient to use

Rotating flame, resembling that of a light house, has a relaxing effect. Sit back with a hot drink or wine and enjoy the soothing motion of the flame as it rotates naturally, at the rate of a human heart beat.

Clean & No Mess

Unlike a candle, there is no wax mess and no messy refilling because the GALLUS® Lamp uses disposable oil cartridges. Simply dispose of used cartridges which remove easily from the base.


Automatic flame extinguishing feature, when someone pushes against the glass. Glass chimney cover protects the flame from wind and light rain.

Surface Stability

Silicone feet hold on to just about any surface, even when wet. Even in the most rough and choppy of waters, the GALLUS® Lamp will hold steadfast on all standard surfaces.

Custom Engraving

Order today and get your GALLUS® Lamp base engraved with your own personal message (and/or small logo). Engraving normally costs $50 per order, but order now and get 50% off your custom engraving. Engrave the name of your boat, favorite captain, explorer or adventurer.
A fascinating, patented nautical gift for the captain who has everything!

  • The History of the GALLUS® Lamp

    In the small medieval town of Arbon on Lake Constance, where, almost 2000 years ago, a Roman emperor led a naval battle against the Alemannic tribes, a ship's captain meets a brilliant Swiss engineer with a literally revolutionary prototype. The result of this meeting is the GALLUS® Lamp, a modern oil lamp enhanced with rotating flame technology that creates a unique and patented light house effect. For the first time in thousands of years of candle use, control of the movement of a flame is possible. read more
