I think it is the lamp that was given by Jose Rizal to her sister before he was executed. It is said that he said to his sister, in English, "There's something inside." What was inside is a paper on which is written, "Mu Ultimo Adios."

Oh, it is? I am not even aware of that, Fr Jeff. Thanks for the info. I thought I saw it in the Rizal Museum in Fort Santiago.
