Hadad Sterling Silver Etrog Box - Angled Picket Fence design
Store and transport your esrog in safety and style throughout the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (Tabernacles) in this box with the angled picket fence design. The 925 sterling silver box, by Hadad Bros. of Israel, weighs 285 gram. Made in Israel
The Four Species (Hebrew: ארבעת המינים, also called Arba minim, or sometimes just lulav and etrog) are three types of branches and one type of fruit which are held together and when the Hallel and the Hoshanas are said, every day (except for Shabbat) during the Jewish festival of Sukkot (Feast of Booths, Tabernacles)
The Etrog (a citrus fruit which is very similar to a lemon, also called a citron) is by far the costliest item of the four, and also the most fragile. Most etrogs have an extension which looks like a little knob, known in Jewish tradition as the 'pitam', at the end opposite the stem. If this pitam falls, then your etrog is no longer considered kosher, and therefore can no longer be used during the Sucot ceremonies. This is why it is customary to get a special box to store the esrog in during the holiday.
This 925 sterling silver box for the etrog with the picket fence design by Hadad Bros. of Israel will serve to protect your esrog securely.
The oval shaped box stands on small curved sterling silver legs. The perimeter of the bottom of the box is adorned by a wavy design, which serves as the 'base' for the angled picket fence design which reaches almost to the top of the sides of the box. Right above the rounded ends of the 'fence' the artists of Hadad Bros. engraved miniature flowers, which are then topped by a solid silver line.
The cover of the box is connected to the base with a hinge on one side. The other side of the cover has a latch to securely close the box in order to protect the Etrog. The sides of the cover are also done as a smooth wide silver band. The swirled design on the domed cover of the box reflects the picket fence pieces, modified, of course, to the oval shape of the cover, and reaching right up to the small handle.
The box will serve you well during the Sukkot holiday, and adorn your silver display during the rest of the year.
