Sterling Silver Hanukka Menorah, Octagonal and Bow base - Hadad
Bring in the light on Hanukkah with the unusual design of this stunning Hanukkiah. The bow arm holding the stems of the candles gives it a unique feeling. This Hanukkah Menorah in sterling silver by Hadad of Israel weighs 485 grams.
The Jewish holiday of Chanukkah is the holiday of lights. This unique Hanukkah Menorah – Hanukkia – will help whoever lights it to have a Happy Hanukkah and say the Hanukkah blessings with joy.
Each day of Hanukkah we light one more candle. One candle is lit on the first day, and all eight on the eighth day. It has been customary to light them all in one row, and the design of this Hanukkia makes this possible. An extra candle cup is provided, attached at the front, outside of the row. This is because this cup is meant to hold the extra candle used for lighting all the others, and is therefore called the "Shamash" – literally the "helper" or "caretaker".
The ornately carved sterling silver feet of this Menorah flow into the narrow facets of the octagonal shape of its base. Narrow and wide facets alternate to form the sturdy yet elegant base. The base narrows slowly, widens again, and then flows steeply to a flat surface – all in smooth shiny silver guaranteed to multiply the reflections of the candles.
As small square column pinched in its middle sits atop the flat surface, serving as the base for the tall six sided column giving height and elegance to the Menorah. The column ends on top with a flattened silver shape which holds both the base for the bow arm and the arm holding the Shamash. The bow arm holds all eight stems for the candle holders. Each is attached to the arm with a carved reverse flower, punctuating the smooth design of the rest of this amazing example of Judaica. The bow continues the upward effect, striving up towards the lights of the candles. The candle holders are each shaped as a smooth silver jug, allowing you to fill them with oil for saying the Chanukkah blessings, while enabling you to use Chanukah candles if you so wish.
This Hanukkah Menorah will surely delight you or whoever you give it to for the upcoming Chanukkah holiday, while at the same time becoming a treasured heirloom in your silver Judaica collection.
