Detailed item info
BEZALEL SILVER Chanukah/">Hannukah MENORAH MACCABI JUDAICA RABAN Jewish Art Palestine Gift
a rare reproduction of the famous Bezalel School of "Palestine"
Menorah. It was reproduced some time in the past 10 years from ORIGINAL
MOLDS of the real Menorah, making this an authentic Bezalel Menora,
albeight a present day creation. I've seen these repro's going for $800
and more on the internet on less than honest sellers. (see my guide
on these fakes and other fakers).
theme of this Chanukiyah is naturally the hannuka story. If you notice,
the old man with the beard is mattisyahu, the father of the maccabean
fighters chasing away the Hellenized jews (far right) who wanted to
offer a pig on the altar of G-d. On the bottom left is a persecuted jew
holding a stone from the altar, next to the stone is a fallen jug of oil
and above that seems to be a full jug of pure olive oil ready to light
the Menorah (candelabra) of the temple, thus starting the Hanuka miracle
story believed by Jews, Christians and I guess Moslems too. On the
bottom is the lettering stating Bezalel Jerusalem. The person in charge
of this and many of the other Bezalel Menorot was the well known artist
This Menorah is silver plated over copper.
Measurements: 7 1/4 inches = 18.5cm wide and at it's highest and 19.5cm = 7 3/4 inches.
