Ancient Near East, Holy Land, Middle Bronze Age I-II, ca. 2200 to 1750 BCE. A group of four open-face terracotta oil lamps with pinched spouts. The largest lamp has a flat base, four wide spout ends, and a deep basin cavity. The two medium-sized lamps have a single pinched spout with rounded but stable bases. The smallest lamp, with a flat circular base, has a single spout that has been closed off around the neck which forms a more-traditional upturned 'spout' end. A wonderful ensemble for any collection! Size: 6.75" W (17.1 cm).
Provenance: private Carlton collection, Los Angeles, California, USA, acquired between 1965 and 1980
