Rare Romano-Byzantine Glass Pendant Menorah
Item Details
Description
Late Roman to Early Byzantine, ca. 300 to 500 CE. A rare and beautiful amulet of a generally circular form with a flat bottom, a raised periphery, and an integral suspension loop, mold-pressed from attractive cobalt blue glass to depict a seven-lamp (six branches plus the central one) menorah upon the recessed front face. The menorah was historically used by Moses in the sanctuary he established in the wilderness and later in the famous Temple of Jerusalem. A nine-lamp variation of the menorah is traditionally used for the observance of Chanukah (Hanukah). A lovely Judaica piece bearing the likeness of a symbol of Judaism that originated in ancient times - that is also the featured emblem on the coat of arms for modern-day Israel. Size: 0.95" L x 0.75" W (2.4 cm x 1.9 cm)

Provenance: private Surfside, Florida, USA collection; ex-Artemis Gallery; ex-Phoenicia Holyland Antiquities; ex-Liebert Family collection, late 1990s

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
