  Shabbat plate, Germany, 19th century

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 11.1991

The pewter Sabbath plate is round, with a raised rim. The central decoration depicts three people seated at a table, on which appear bread and a pitcher. On the left sits a bearded man, holding a cup aloft in his right hand and supporting an open book on the table with his left hand. Two arched windows flank the middle figure. Above the middle figure hangs a candelabrum called "Judenstern"

 The inscription around the rim reads: "ברוך אתה י אלהינו מלך העולם בורא פרי הגפן"

"Blessed art thou, O Lord our G-d, who created the fruit of the vine."
