Exodus 25:38 - The Golden Menorah (Lampstand) - The Golden Utensils

There were two different types of utensils used with the Lampstand:
  1. The Oil Pans - to add oil in the Lamps
  2. The Tweezers - to handle and service the Lamps.
Lets' take a look:

Exodus 25:38
38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold.
38 ‏וּמַלְקָחֶ֥יהָ וּמַחְתֹּתֶ֖יהָ זָהָ֥ב טָהֽוֹר׃

And here is an overview, so that you can compare the dimensions:

Length of the utensils was probably no more that 1.5-2 cubits, but figuring out the precise dimensions would require a much deeper and thorough inquiry into the matter.
