20 Description

The silver Seder plate is oval with a raised rim. The inner part depicts the Egyptains drowning in the Red Sea. The Israelites in the right side are standing on the sea shore faicing the sea left to them. Part of them are armed with spears. Moses in the head of the Israelites, raises his rod over the sea. The Egyptian host with their chariots are seen drowning in the water. Pharaoh in his chariot that floats on the water, is raising his left hand and points towards the sky. He is bearded, crowned and armoured. The rim of the plate is decorated with foliat and floral motivs and has wavy edge. On the back side of the plate is inscribed in cursive letters: "ברוך)?( תרע"ד" Baruch ? (5)674 (=1914).

The image is a mirror copy of an illumination in the Amsterdam Haggadah of 1695 and that of 1712.
