Authentic Judaic Terra Cotta Oil Lamp, Israel Middle East

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Oil lamps appear in the Torah and other Jewish sources as a symbol of “lighting” the way for the wise and righteous.  Oil lamps and the light they give were important household items as well as being used in many spiritual rituals.

I have had this single nozzle terra cotta lamp in my personal antiquity collection for nearly 15 years.  It was unearthed in the 1950s.   I secured it from a world renowned antique and collectible company, Shan Premier Corporation in New York.  They guaranteed it to be over 2000 years old.

Simple in design.  Holding it brings a whole new perspective of life in those times.

It is in very good condition. It comes with a simple lucite stand.  For the Serious Collector.

Sorry but this item has sold.
