Ancient Israel, Pinched-Rim Oil Lamp, Late Bronze Age II, 1400 - 1200 B.C.
This lamp has no rim. It is a simple shallow saucer with the sides folded (pinched) to make a triangular wick-rest. Its austerity of form and simple design indicate it is an early type of "pinched-rim" saucer lamp and date it to the Late Bronze Age. As is typical for the type, the walls and rim of wick channel are blackened indicating the wick burned within and along the channel, not just at the end.
AH21343. Pinched-rim oil lamp; Sussman p. 47, figure 5.29:1; Petrie Gerar 91e; 4.7 cm (1 7/8") high, 14.9 cm (5 7/8") long, 14.8 cm (5 3/4") wide, Choice, minor chipping on rim, earthen deposits (visible in the photo), wheel-made with wheel marks on underside, gray-brown clay with a cream slip, thin-walled shallow bowl, without rim, v-shaped spout, round thick bottom made by adding clay to the underside of the turned bowl; ex Edgar L. Owen; ON LAYAWAY
