20 Description

The kiddush cup is cylindrical and tapers at the bottom.

It is decorated with a wide band containing three oval medallions which are surrounded by an undulating foliate branch. Each medallion contains one of the following holy places: the Western Wall (9248), the Cave of Makhpelah (9250), the Tomb of the Kings of the Dynasty of David (9249) (read clockwise). The appropiate title is inscribed above each place in the medallions.

The central band is surmounted by a band that bears a dedicatory inscription in square filled letters encircling the top of the cup. It reads:

מנחה שלוחה מאתנו שבתי ו'ז )וזוגתו( הדס ק'ב )ק' ברכות( מעה'ק )מעיר הקודש( צפת'ו )צפת תבנה ותכונן( לבנינו היקר יעקב שלום נ'י )נרו יאיר(

"An offering presented by, Shabtai and his wife Hadas, one hundred blessings from the holy city of Safed, may it be built and established, to our dear son, Jacob Shalom, may his light shine."

The smooth band beneath the central band, is undecorated.
