Rustic. Considerable wear to the silver-plate with copper showing through.Wobbles a little because the feet bottoms are not completely even,however the box is stable and not in danger of falling over.One of the nuts and bolts has additional 2 pieces of metalinserted on the inside of the lid to secure the handle (photo 8).
The Etrog is referred to as "Citrus fruit" (Etz hadar), and theLulav is referred to as "Palm branches" (Kapot t'marim).Each species kabbalistically represents an aspectof the users body; the Lulav represents the spine,the myrtlethe eyes, the willow the lips, and the Etrog represents the heart.
