Lamp is decorated with four animals whose features cannot be distinguished. The foot is a circular ridge with eight arms radiating from the center. The handle rises from the surface of the top of the lamp in a conical form. A trough surrounds the fill hole and leads to the nozzle, which is encompassed in the body of the teardrop-shaped lamp. Discoloration at the nozzle indicates use.
