Abstract

Molded lamp has a tongue handle that rises at a 45 degree angle from the back of the lamp. The handle is 2.5 cm. wide and 1.6 cm. thick, decorated with five vertical inscribed lines on the inside face of the handle. There is no other surface decoration. A band runs along the outer edge of the handle and traces the perimeter of the lamp. A ridge defines the upper edge of the lamp, surrounding both the fill hole and the nozzle. The base is a circular ridge, heavily worn on this object. Black discoloration at the nozzle indicates use.
