Molded lamp has a circular body from which the nozzle extends on the side away from the handle. The high handle is a conical projection rising from the upper surface of the lamp at a right angle to the base. The upper surface is decorated with raised chevrons and circles. The bottom rests on a raised circle with a potterâ€™s mark inside: M over Alpha? A piece of the fill hole rim and upper body toward the nozzle are broken away. The nozzle is blocked by debris. Discoloration on the nozzle indicates use.
