it measures roughly 6 1/4" x 4"1lb & 3oz'sHistory:
In 1939 in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Maurice Ascalon (formerly known as Moshe Klein) founded Pal-Bell Co. Ltd., with the mission of creating tasteful decorative and functional metalwork and Judaica of the highest quality. Above we see an image of the Pal-Bell logo, which appears stamped onto the underside of many of its items.From its founding in 1939, until 1956, Pal-Bell - a.k.a. Palbell - created scores of distinct brass and bronze items. Its wares ranged from decorative bowls, vases, pitchers, trivits and ashtrays, secular in motif, often Art Deco in style; to traditional styled, Judaic-themed commemorative plates, candle sticks, menorahs, bookends, figurines and more. Here are some images from original Pal-Bell catalogues.Maurice Ascalon, who received formal artistic training in Brussels and Milan, was also Pal-Bell's chief designer. Through Pall-Bell, Ascalon introduced the use of green patina to Israel's modern metal craft industry. The application of reactive chemicals to the raw bronze and brass gave many Pal-Bell items their unique "antique" verdigris appearance. This technique was later imitated by other Israeli metal craft companies, and the green patina style became a hallmark of 20th century Israeli metalware.Pal-Bell's products were a favorite of tourists visiting Israel, especially during the early 1950s, which saw the company's height of production. Pal-Bell also exported a large quantity of its items worldwide, primarily to the United States and Britain, where they were sold in retail stores. Pal-Bell's two factories, located on the outskirts of Tel-Aviv, towards Jaffa, employed as many as 100 people. Today, Pal-Bell originals are highly valued collectables among Judaica, metalware and tobacciana enthusiasts.In addition to the familiar "olive branch" oil burning menorah designed by Ascalon (Item 214 - above right page), among Pal-Bell's most valuable works are several limited edition Judaica items that Ascalon collaborated on with Bezalel artist Ze-ev Raban (i.e., Item 580 - above right page). Maurice Ascalon was assisted in the management of Pal-Bell's factories by Emmanuel Tzibener and Alexander Rozensweig. In 1948, during Israel's War for Independence, in order to assist Israel's efforts, Ascalon re-tooled the factories to manufacture munitions and bomb detonators for Israel's armed forces.In 1956, Maurice Ascalon relocated his family to the United States, where he co-founded Ascalon Studios, an art and design studio specializing in worship spaces and public sculpture. In February 2003, Ascalon celebrated his 90th birthday in Curnavaca, Mexico, where he had resided for the past several years. In August 2003, after a full life, Ascalon passed away as a result of complications after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease.
