This object is a standing branch Hanukkah lamp and has a Star of David and eagle at the top, center. The spread, flying eagle is a common motif in Eastern European art. The Star of David is a relatively new addition to Jewish ritual art, appearing only in the 19th century. There is a similar object in the Jewish Museum to this lamp (Accession Number F 982)—predictably, with an Eastern European, 19th century origin.
