Ancient Israel, Pinched-Rim Oil Lamp, Late Bronze IIB - Iron Age I, c. 1300 - 1000 B.C.
|Oil| |Lamps|, |Ancient| |Israel,| |Pinched-Rim| |Oil| |Lamp,| |Late| |Bronze| |IIB| |-| |Iron| |Age| |I,| |c.| |1300| |-| |1000| |B.C.|, This type of lamp has many nicknames including: pinched-rim, cocked hat, saucer, and shell type. With few exceptions, they can be roughly dated by the height of the base and the prominence of the rim opposite the nozzle. Both the height of the base and the width of the rim grew over time. On the earliest lamps the edge of the bowl is vertical with no outward folded rim. Most of the earliest lamps have a round bottom, with no distinct base. The last lamps of Southern Israel have a high stepped base comprised of a disk base on a distinct heel. On some of the latest Iron Age lamps the rim becomes so wide and the base so thick that the oil receptical appears somewhat impractically small. The simple pinched-rim form had a revival in the Hellenistic period, at which time the lamps were smaller and of a finer clay.
