The brass free-standing back-walled Hanukah lamp consists of eight oil containers, a parapet, back and side walls.
Eight triangular spouted oil containers are fastened to the back wall and enclosed behind a rectangular parapet, which consists of seven oval openings in diamond-shaped frames. There are circles in between the ovals. The parapet is connected to the side walls by figures of two birds.
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. The balcony is surmounted by an arcade of eight horseshoe arches, which supports a slanted roof. The roof is decorated with vertical lines, 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 side walls of the lamp consist, each, of a rampant lion climbing on a tree and facing outward, while holding with its tale a vase-shape candle socket with a saucer.
