The brass free-standing back-walled Hanukah lamp consists of eight oil containers, a parapet, back, and sidewalls.
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, surmounted by small palmetto-lite protrusions. 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. 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 has 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 without a saucer.
