December 4 - 20 Kislev 5773: Hanukkah Lamp, maker unknown

Hanukkah Lamp, maker unknown

Copper; Netherlands, 1705

From the collection of the Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam

 

There is a slight color difference between the back plate and the half-crowns with drip tray in front. Perhaps it was originally a candlestick and adapted as a Hanukkah lamp later.  The hook at the top indicates the lamp can be suspended.
