Comes from the monastery chapel of a closed abbey. This original lamp has a diameter of approx 15 cm and is whirl-shaped. A cross sign hangs from the tip.

Three 32 cm long chains of delicately decorated links are attached to the handles. The chains come together in a round heat shield that hangs from a single chain. The total length is approx. 100 cm. The lamp holds a removable purple glass cup for burning a candle, tea light or oil. It is in good condition with few signs of use. Has been polished frequently.
