GROUP SHOT! I WANT DOUBLES!! - FROM THE MAX STERN COLLECTION, PART 4 
These three “buddies” are part of a silver Hanukkah lamp (menorah or hanukiah) in YU Museum’s dazzling Max Stern Collection of Judaica. This particular lamp did not use candles, but wicks submerged in a oil; these three “forms” are each one of those oil holders (we’re looking at their bottom views).
A Hanukkah lamp / menorah / hanukiah is the central object in the holiday of Hanukkah, an eight-day long festival that falls in December during which time Jews recall and celebrate miracles from the war between the Macabee-led Jews against the culturally-(ancient) Greek Jews in the land of Israel thousands of years ago.
