This mass-produced, cream-colored Hanukkah lamp was cast from a mould and is hollow. Nine round indentations are aligned horizontally along the top of the lamp as candleholders. The center indentation is set higher than the others, indicating the place for the helper light (shamash). The lineal relief structure on the side planes suggests the simplified form of a traditional, standing Hanukkah lamp.
