Details

Porcelain

Diameter: 15" / 38 cm

This breathtaking Passover Seder plate is a replica of one of the few preserved objects of Jewish ceremonial art from Spain prior to the expulsion of the Jews in 1492. 

Shaped and decorated in a manner typical of contemporary Spanish houseware plates, it features repeated motifs of gadroons, and floral and geometric designs in brownish-gold and cobalt blue. The inscription refers to the three main elements of the Passover feast: pesach (paschal lamb), matzah (unleavened bread), and maror (bitter herbs), as well as the word seder. The spelling errors suggest that the plate was comissioned from a non-Jewish craftsman who was unfamiliar with Hebrew. 

Note: the plate is pictured with the matching porcelain dishes, available at an additional charge. 

For an additional $74.00 you can add the six matching porcelain dishes. 

Each of the small dishes has a diameter of 3.4" / 8.5 cm. 

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.
