Lamp - modern or ancient? (2)

Hi all,

Ive got another lamp, not sure if it is authentic or not. Any help with attribution would be greatly appreciated =)

Thanks all!

This type of lamp was made in the Levantine region of northern Jordan and parts of northern Israel in the 6th - early 7th centuries AD.

Although lamps from this region have been extensively faked, this example does appear to be authentic from the images.

Hi all,

Thanks Strobilus, that certainly looks right from other examples of the type you suggested.

Can anyone suggest a method of cleaning i might use to remove more of the sandy/crusty dirt that is encasing my lamp?

Thanks all!
