Israel Museum Hanukkah Menorah Replica - 18th Century Poland
Size: 25cm x 28cm / 9.8" x 11"
This gleaming brass Hanukkah menorah will make a stunning and authentic addition to your winter celebrations. It is a carefully copied replica of a brass menorah from the 18th century which was recovered in Poland; the original is part of the Ticho collection on display in Jerusalem. It features two crowing peacocks set above two wide-eyed doves, against a boxed background of swirling foliate designs. The oil holders are shaped like small oil jugs, and are best used by pouring in oil and adding a wick.
This menorah's Polish origins are evident by the unique combination of Shabbat and Hanukkah candles: at the front of the menorah stand two candle holders.
