A Neoclassical Styled Chanukah Lamp

A Neoclassical Styled Chanukah Lamp

0.00

Expertly cast brass featuring highly detailed motifs such as a Star of David in a laurel wreath, upper portion comprised of twisted-rope forms topped by swags and finished with a sunburst. On square-shaped base: griffins with protruding tongues. In center of shaft: “Menorah” in Hebrew. The dominating influence of Neoclassical Revival on this lamp indicates a marketing vision by its maker to a thoroughly integrated Jewish population, who would welcome owning a Chanukah Lamp displaying the latest fashions of the time. Central Europe (France?). Early 20th century.
