This is a nine-branched menorah used on Hanukkah, because Hanukkah commemorates the miracle that a day's worth of oil for this menorah lasted eight days.
This is a very beautiful and interesting vintage menorah and was high quality made. It is wonderfully detailed with great Jewish symbolism.
It was made by Oppenheim in Israel
About twenty metal workshops were operating in Israel from 1950 to the 1970's. These shop created a variety of Judaical home arts and decor and many were sold as souvenirs and gift items. The Israeli Metal arts and crafts Industry offered an affordable and decorative arts for the new immigrants of Israel. These also appealed to many Jewish people living outside of Israel mainly in the United States. Also many were sold to tourists and pilgrims who came to visit the Holy Land. Most of these workshops were closed in the 1970's. Now these beautiful works of art are becoming rare and collectible worldwide.


BRIEF HISTORY OF MENORAHSThe Hanukkah menorah (Hebrew: מנורת חנוכה m'noraht khanukkah)
(also Hebrew: חַנֻכִּיָּה‎ hanukiah, or chanukkiyah, pl. hanukiyot/chanukkiyot,
or
Yiddish: חנוכּה לאמפּ khanike lomp, lit.: Hanukkah lamp)
is, strictly speaking, a nine-branched candelabrum
lit during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah,
as opposed to the seven branched menorah used in the ancient Temple
or as a symbol.
The ninth holder, called the shamash
("helper" or "servant"),
is for a candle used to light all other candles.
Hanukkah celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple after the successful Jewish revolt against the Seleucid monarchy. The Jews found only enough ritually pure olive oil to light the menorah for one day, but the supply supposedly lasted eight days until a new supply could be obtained. In celebration of this happenstance, the Hanukkah menorah has eight branches for eight candles or oil lamps.LIGHTING THE MENORAH:
The Hanukkah menorah has a ninth branch for an auxiliary candle, the shamash.
The shamash, service candle, or in the old translation: the sexton. ... The shamash is the candle that serves the others.
The shamash is used to light the other candles.
The holder for the shamash candle is distinguished in some way from the other eight, which must sit at the same height. Traditionally, the shamash is placed higher than the others, and often in the center, with four of the other candles on each side.
