The back-walled Hanukkah lamp is made of silver and consists of a row of eight oil containers, a back and side walls, and legs. A row of eight spouted pitcher-shaped oil containers is set in an unattached array on a straight bar. The bar is surrounded by a parapet with filigree decoration and rests on six curved legs. The arched back wall consists of filigree fastened to a brass back-plate. The filigree decoration bears in the center an arched opening with two doors flanked by two pillasters with square bases and capitals. A vase with flowers is mounted on each of the capitals. A cast bird surmounts the arched opening and above it is a central rosette bearing a lion's head, holding a ring. On top of the back wall is a cast crown surrounded by filigree bands and flanked by two deer facing each other. An open winged bird surmounts the crown. The fixed triangular side walls are decorated in filigree with floral motifs. Their wavy rims are surrounded by a strip of geometrical pattern. Indentical horizontal strips divide them into two parts. They are surmounted by a cast bird facing inward. There is a hole through which to insert the Shamash on the left side of the back wall.
