Armenian pottery from Jerusalem tells a story of migration from present-day Istanbul to Jerusalem when Armenians were charged by Ottoman rulers with restoring the 15th century tiles on the Mosque of Omar. Since then Armenian ceramics have been ubiquitous in Jerusalem and a popular souvenir item. Judaica Webstore carries a complete line of Armenian ceramics so you can bring a piece of Jerusalem culture into your home.
For the Dining Room
For the table we offer plates, bowls and mugs. Popular motifs include deer, peacocks, fish, and of course flowers. There are also Old Jerusalem scenes and plates that say Shalom! The bowls, and plates are perfect for fruit arrangements or table service on special occasions, like Shabbat or Passover Seder. Of course they are also large and colorful enough for display, too. The mugs make a simple but perfect gift that will be a delight to use each morning.
Trays for Passover and Tea and Coffee Service
We also carry a wonderful selection of trays. There are square all-ceramic trays, trays of wood inlaid with ceramic tiles, and an eight-piece tray of seven ceramic sections which fit into a decorative metal frame. The eight-piece tray is of course perfect for Seder, while the square all-ceramic trays are great for any occasion. The wooden trays, however, lend themselves especially to breakfast in bed and tea and coffee service. It just so happens we also carry matching coasters, Armenian ceramic teapots, and an eight-piece coffee set!
