Oil lamp Canaanite


Among the earliest of clay lamps is the saucer lamp of the Iron Age.
In antiquity, these were developed after a saucer or shallow bowl which had its edges folded up to form a spout. A great variety of these lamps exists and this replica is based on a style common from about 1500 BC to 600 BC., but could extend further back and forward in time several centuries. These lamps would have been the style in use in the Old Testament especially in King David's time. Every Canaanite lamp is hand folded, so minor variation from that seen in the photo will occur, but all have this general look.

1500 BC to 600 BC.  


Size: diameter about 4 3/4"; 12 cm.
Includes wick and instructions.
