A stamp at the bottom of the lamp identifies the place of origin as Israel. There is a similar object from the Jewish Museum (Accession Number JM 6-54)—a patinated Hanukkah lamp with a semicircle grouping of oil lamps arranged in front of a copper alloy olive branch. That lamp comes from Tel Aviv, possibly suggesting the city of origin for this object. Since the stamp says that this object (cai 027) was “Made in Israel,” it was probably made after Israel became an independent country in 1948—in line with the object from the Jewish Museum, which was created in 1950.
