20 Description The free standing Hanukkah lamp consists of eight oil containers, side walls and a back wall. The oil containers are eliptical with a wire at the edge of each one to hold the wick. They are in a straightline and are connected to the back wall. The narrow rectangular back wall bears an oval medallion in the centre with the initials "XR" inscribed in it. The medallion is flanked by a rhomboid pattern with dots in the center. The rhomboids are framed by foliate scrolls with flowers at the edge. An eagle with spread wings is perched on the medallion and faces left. The side walls consist of a cornucopia with a bouqet of flowers emerging from it. The hanukkah lamp rest on the cornucopia and two additional hook like legs that are situated under the oil containers.
