This exceptional vintage sterling silver hanukkiah* has plain circular capitals onto a baluster panelled column to an incurved oval foot.
This vintage candelabrum features nine imposing angular arms (labra); four to either side of the column and one perpendicular.
The circular rounded capitals have plain flared rims.
The upper portion of the column is fitted with an impressive baluster decorated terminal surmounted with a Star of David* design.
The surface of the base is embellished with fluted decoration, with a paralleling reed decorated border to the lower portion.
This exceptional vintage silver Hanukkah menorah / hanukkiah does not have a weighted base.
* This hanukkiah (Hebrew: חַנֻכִּיָּה) is lit during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah. The ninth holder is called the shamash and is used to light the other eight during the celebrations.
** The Star of David can also be referred to as the Shield of David or Magen David and is a recognised symbol of Judaism.
