There is a lamp of a nearly identical cast from Tunis in the Jewish Museum (Museum Number F 3753). Unlike the object in the Jewish Museum, this lamp is enameled, has ridges, and has a curled, and has a curled wire at the bottom. Hanukkah lamps from North African origin are sometimes enameled and frequently have ridges on the backplates. But there appear to be few, if any, examples of similar lamps with the curled wire. As a result, it is possible the wire was added on later. Still, the lamp appears to come from North Africa.
