This Hanukkah lamp is a replica of a work in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The original is among the earliest known examples of the menorah form that was created for home use. These domestic versions were first made in Frankfurt, Germany, in the late seventeenth century. The decoration on the arms conforms to the biblical description of the seven-branch menorah made for the Tabernacle in the Wilderness: “three cups made like almond blossoms, in one branch, a knob and a flower” (Exodus 25:31-40). Various animals, including a stag, a squirrel, and a camel, ornament the lid for the oil containers, while at the top stands the biblical heroine Judith. The Book of Judith recounts how she saved her town in ancient Israel when it was under siege by the Assyrian general Holofernes. Pretending to be interested in a romantic liaison with Holofernes, Judith waited until he had passed out from too much liquor and cut off his head. During the medieval period, Judith came to be associated with the Maccabees, important figures in the story of Hanukkah, and thus with the holiday. Each comes in a sturdy wooden storage box. For use with oil only. Sterling silver. 17" x 15-3/8" x 8-11/16" $5400.00 $4860.00 for Jewish Museum Members
