Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures


Ancient Holy Land terra-cotta oil lamp. Worn designs.  Concentric circles on base.  Small knob handle.  Grayish / brown coloration.  Crisply molded geometric and floral designs, gestural ring base and small knob handle.

Acquired and uncovered from 1963 through 1969 by a couple who extensively traveled the Mideast and Northern Africa.

Personally examined by a western U.S. state museum director.  He has assured me that they are indeed original and not reproductions or facsimiles. 

The condition is excellent.
