  Kiddush cup

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1986
The glass goblet consists of a base,a shaft and a body. The base is round and raising. It is encircled by bands of scrolls and dots. The shaft is cylindrical and tappering towards a knob. The body is decorated with two cartouches, surrounded by foliate design. One cartouche is decorated with a depiction of Moses coming down the mountain, carrying the Tablets of the Covenant. At the background are small figures. The other cartouche depicts King Solomon. He sits on his chair, holding a scroll in his left. His right hand is leaning on an architectural structure with a lion shape. Betweeen the two cartouches on one side is a seven branched menorah. On the other side appears the Star of David and above it the Tablets of the Covenant. The uppers border are encircled by bands of scrolls and dots.
