Rustic. Considerable wear to the silver-plate with copper showing through.Wobbles a little because the feet bottoms are not completely even,however the box is stable and not in danger of falling over.One of the nuts and bolts has additional 2 pieces of metalinserted on the inside of the lid to secure the handle (photo 8).
The Etrog is referred to as "Citrus fruit" (Etz hadar), and the
Lulav is referred to as "Palm branches" (Kapot t'marim).
Each species kabbalistically represents an aspect
of the users body; the Lulav represents the spine, the myrtle
the eyes, the willow the lips, and the Etrog represents the heart.Selling as is. Please look through all photos carefully
as they are a detailed part of the description.Feel free to contact Quail and Bear with any questions or for more photos.
