The design of the base is divided into two registers.  The upper contains a gabled Ark of the Law, ots open doors revaling three shelves of scrolls.  A lion is depicted on each side.  In the lower register, two seven-branched menorahs, a palm branch (lulav), citron (etrog) and ram's horn (shofar) are depicted.

 

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a short description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
