Object Lisp was an object-oriented extension for Lisp Machine Lisp designed by Lisp Machines, Inc. Object Lisp is an early example of Prototype-based programming.

It was seen as a competitor to other object-oriented extensions to Lisp at around the same time such as Flavors, in use by Symbolics, Common Objects developed by Hewlett-Packard, and CommonLoops, in use by Xerox.

Object Lisp was also used in early versions of Macintosh Common Lisp. There the user interface toolkit was written using Object Lisp.
