The brass free-standing back-walled Hanukah lamp consists of eight oil containers, the backside of a parapet, back, and sidewalls.
Eight triangular spouted oil containers are fastened to the back wall. The front side of the parapet is missing.
The back wall resembles a facade of a building. In the center of the wall, there is an arched door flanked by two pilasters and by two arched windows, which are slightly higher than the door. The back wall bears a brick design. There is an oval window above the door. The pilasters “support” a balcony decorated by two rows of holes. The balcony is surmounted by an arcade of eight horseshoe arches, which supports a slanted roof. The roof is decorated with lines and dots, a wavy rim and two “chimneys” on top.
The roof is surmounted by two birds facing outwards, connected to two birds facing in and forming a heart shape with their heads. The heart is topped by a palmetto.
The sidewalls of the lamp consist, each, of a rampant lion, climbing on a tree and facing outward, while holding with its tale a vase-shaped candle socket with a saucer.
