Judenstern Lamps?

Judenstern Lamps?

Hi folks,

I’ve been looking at historical Shabbos lamps in German Jewish history – sometimes called “judenstern” lamps. Example.

For a lamp like the one pictured, what oil do you think would be used? (Olive oil?) And what would keep the flames up out of the oil? (Or, is the wick’s overhang enough?)

Information about these lamps is pretty sparse, so I’d love to hear from anyone who’s familiar with them! 😁
