Description: A fawn clay wheel-made ‘boot’ type oil lamp with reddish-brown slip, the body decorated with parallel grooves, forming a step effect upwards to a short cylindrical neck; and with a high-arched handle extending from the mid-body to the filler hole rim. Some wear to the slip particularly on the handle and underside and some minor encrustation, but a good example of the type, probably from southern Israel.
