ANTIQUE PEWTER JEWISH WEDDING PLATE

Among the customs observed during the Jewish wedding festivities was the groom’s sermon on various

themes from the Bible and the Talmud, for which he would then receive a gift. In central Europe, the wedding

gift was usually a tin plate which was acquired for this purpose from one of the religious societies of the

Jewish community. It was also provided with an engraved dedicatory inscription, sometimes with a decoration.

These items did not differ in shape from ordinary plates; often, use was made of an old plate on which the

dedication to the groom was engraved at a later date.


THE PLATE IS DECORATED WITH TWO TULIPS AND A CROWN ABOVE THE TWO HEBREWLETTERS ש ח .

THE TWOLETTERS ARE INITIALS OF שמחת חתן ( GROOM'S JOY ) .

THE GROOM IS RESEMBLING TO A KING ON HIS WEDDING DAY ( THE CROWN ) .

ON THE RIM ENGRAVED TWO LETTERS WHICH ARE PROBABLY THE GROOM'S INITIALS ( PICTURE5 )

ON THE BACK SIDE THERE IS ANUNIDENTIFIED , UNUSUAL HALLMARK .
