The Four species (Hebrew: ארבע מינים, Arba Minim, or just 'lulav and etrog') are held and waved together every day (except for Shabbat) of the Jewish festival of Sukot (Tabernacles, Feast of Booths) when the Halled and Hoshanas are said.Three types of branches and one type of fruit make up these four species. The fruit is the Etrog - a lemon like citrus fruit. It is the most costly of the four, and also the most fragile. Most of the etrogs have a 'pitam' - the traditional name for the little knob like extension at end which is opposite from the stem of the etrog. If the pitam falls, the etrog can no longer be used since it is no longer considered kosher. It has been customary to acquire a special box in order to protect the etrog. The chest shape of this silver box will provide perfect protection for your precious esrog during the Sukkot Holiday, which is a time for rejoicing.
The four legs whose angle flows into the columns of the box are carved with a detailed leafy design. The entire perimeter of the box is rimmed with upside down arches, which are then reflected in reverse on the perimeter of the cover of the box. Each facet of the box is surrounded by a smooth frame. Inside each such frame, etched flowers make the box sparkle. On the larger facets, diamond shapes surround each flower, adding even more dazzle.
The same design of a smooth frame, filled with flowers, and diamond shapes on the larger areas, adorns the cover of the box, which of course is securely hinged to the box itself. The latch is done in a design reflect the feet of the box, again in reverse. The entire box is topped by a wide carrying handle.
