Lamp of Recent Sight

Reading about Lamp of Piercing Vision magic item gave me the following brief idea for another magic lamp.

Lamp of Recent Sight

This small brass lamp is shuttered such that it casts a dim thin cone of light 10' wide and 3o' long. A small reservoir holds a hour's worth of oil. The lamp can be lit normally and if done so will function as a normal if weak lamp. But, if the words "Show me." are spoken while holding the unlit lamp it will magically alight and reveal the shimmering indistinct scene as it was 3d12 minutes in the past. The lamp may be panned / moved around always revealing what was occuring X minutes into the past. This will continue until the oil runs out or the phrase "I've seen enough." is spoken by one holding the lamp.

The lamp is engraved with the image of an adventuring party using the lamp to view themselves using the lamp, etc. in an infinite recursion. Below this are the words "And, so it was."
