These Menorahs feature nine branches and can therefore be of mainstream Jewish origin. As today many in the mainstream Jewish community did not model oil lamps in the exact form as those in the Temple. Conversely, those found with seven branches were likely molded by Samarians or heathens. It is also possible thpular historic oil lamp in nice condition and of good size. An attractive intact Menorah lamp! Excellent price for a menorah lamp and a fine addition to any better ancient Judaean artifact collection!
