Hand Carved Wooden Hanukkah Lamp – Cuffed Hands
Hand carved wooden Hannukah lamp. [Second half of the 1940s?].
The oil fonts, shaped like raised hands with shattered handcuffs (hoops with small chains), are placed on a terraced structure. The servant light (shamash) is designed as a biblical figure raising a torch. On the back plate, beams of a rising sun. Rectangular base with star-shaped marquetry decorations and a small, blank plaque.
This lamp was possibly made in one of the British internment camps in Palestine, Cyprus or Africa.
Maximum height: 15.5 cm. Maximum length: 21 cm. Maximum width: 8 cm. Good condition. Minor blemishes. Two chains missing. Lower part and verso covered with paper, peeling and worn.
