  Passover plate (1st quarter of the 19th c.)

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1994

The plate is round with a rased rim. In its center it is inscribed with the order of the Seder. The words are arranged in six lines with the first word comprising the top line and the last word comprising the bottom line. The inscription is in square filled letters:

קדש ##ורחץ כרפס יחץ מגיד##רחצה מוציא מצה## מרור כורך שלחן-עורך##צפון ברך הלל##נרצה,

"Kadesh, U'Rehaz, Karpas, Yahaz, Magid, Rahazah, Mozi, Mazah, Maror, Korekh, Shulhan-Orekh, Zafun, Barekh, Halel, Nirzah"

The word 'Kadesh' at the center of the top line is encircled by a garland with a pair of ribbons on each side. The word 'Nirzah' at the center of the bottom line is surrounded by an oval dotted frame. The rim of the plate bears an oval medallion at the and bottom and two round medallions on each side. Each medallion bears a different scene. The medallion at the top bears a scene of the Israelites leaving Egypt (13760) and the medallion on bottom bears a scene of the five rabbis from Benei Berak (13679). The medallions on the right bear the figures of King Solomon and King David and the medallions on the left bear the figures of Moses and Aaron (13763). A recurring pattern of roses and leaves decorates the rim between the medallions.
