GET YOUR FESTIVAL OF LIGHT SWITCHED ON WITH THIS HANUKKAH LAMP 
Galicia or Ukraine, ca. 1800 Silver: cast, filigree, engraved The Max Stern Collection. Collection of Yeshiva University Museum, New York. This lamp is of the Ba’al Shem Tov type, named after the founder of Hasidism, who, tradition tells us, owned a Hanukkah lamp of this type. This made it very popular in the Ukraine and in Poland. Unfortunately, many collectors have purchased lamps of this type in the mistaken belief that their purchase was originally owned by the Baal Shem Tov himself.
