Silver Matchbook Chanukah Menorah
The effect created by the use of fire and light is highlighted. This menorah is styled to resemble a folding match book. The eight red metal “matchheads” are designed to accept small candles with a shorter black “matchhead” serving as the Shamash (the candle lit first to kindle the others). The blessings for Chanukah lighting are etched onto the background piece together with the words of the song “Haneirot Halalu” (these candles we light). A leather and rubber hinge allows lifting the candle holders for easy cleaning. Can be used with ordinary candles or oil (additional glass balls for oil are supplied).
Materials: Sterling silver, brass, copper, leather
Size: 7″ x 7″ x 7″
