Lovely Antique Etrog Made Of Hammered Copper And Brass Israel Judaica:
Antique Etrog made of Hammered Copper and Brass Israel Judaica. Brought from Israel in the 1960s by a relative. Clearly older as seen from patina and verdigris. I know nothing other than that about its origin. It's about 7 1/4" tall and roughly 6" diameter at the widest point. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
Information about Etrogs from the web:Etrog holders are used during Sukkot, the Festival of Booths, to store the etrog fruit, an oval shaped citron fruit. According to the Book of Leviticus, the etrog is one of the four fruits which Jews are required to bring into the sukkah (booth) on Sukkot. Etrog, according to rabbinic tradition, was considered to be representative of the "fruit of goodly trees," which was believed to be one of the four species of plants. Although the using of etrog during Sukkot dates back to ancient times, the etrog container is of relatively recent origin.
