The Italian scrollwork design flanked by latticework will make any owner of this rounded silver box for the etrog proud. Your rejoicing will be complete throughout the Sukkot (Tabernacles) holiday. The 925 sterling silver box weighs 410 grams. Made in Israel
The Jewish festival of Sukkot (Feast of Booths, Tabernacles) is the time of the Four Species (Hebrew also called Arba minim, or sometimes just lulav and etrog). These 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 of Sukot except for Shabbat.
The most fragile, and by far the costliest item of the four, is the Etrog (a citrus fruit which is very similar to a lemon, also called a citron). It has been customary to acquire a special box in order to protect the etrog. This is because 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.
Your etrog will be protected in style in this 925 sterling silver box for the etrog, decorated with Italian scrollwork and latticework.
The box and its four small curved feet are entirely in Sterling silver The smooth silver band on the bottom serves as a base for the ballooning shape of the container, which then curves inwards again towards the lid. The large panels are each etched with an Italian scrollwork design, with a smooth reverse heart in the center, and the smaller panels are etched with latticework. The same design is repeated on the cover, which is also encircled by a smooth silver band framing the gently curved sloping dome. The cover is securely attached to the box with a hinge, and closes with an etched latch on the other side. The wide handle attached to the box ensures your comfort.
You can be assured that this box will serve you well during the Sukot holiday, and enhance your silver display during the rest of the year.
