This is an authentic, hand-crafted reproduction of the oil lamps in common use in biblical times. Simply insert the included wick and add olive oil.
Because these lamps are made in Bethlehem with real fired clay, they will slowly become saturated with oil over time. This is authentic and normal. We recommend placing the lamp on a saucer to prevent the oil from damaging other surfaces. But if you prefer, we can add a coating of sealant to help prevent seepage from happening. This will add a slight gloss to the surface.
- Do not burn lamps unattended. Children should not use fire unattended.
- Keep flammable items away from the lamp, especially above it.
Don't overlook this beauty

Gift others with this find of the decade! Beautiful, made in Bethlehem, well priced, unusual and authentic. Light on icons is just lovely. I like the sealed version, less leakage at first. Add a few drops of essential oils to olive oil or it will release a strong odor when extinguished.
