Ancient Glass

Roman-Byzantine periods

1st to 6th century C.E.

Antiqued silver pin, in the shape of an ancient Israelite oil lamp off which diamond-shape small charms hang. Brilliant blue glass in the oil well reflects the light as a striking accent.

The simple Israelite oil lamp, fueled with olive oil, was the principal means of illumination in ancient times. \'A Good Deed is a lamp, and learning is light\', and \'the soul of man is called a lamp\' are but two examples from the Sources demonstrating the symbolism of this precious object.
