  Candlesticks

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1992

The candlesticks are composed of a base, shaft and a socket cup.

The round raised base sits on three legs shaped like a cartouche decorated with grapes on a foliate background. The smooth bottom strip of the base bears a dedicatory inscription in square filled letters which reads:

"ז"נ )זאת נדבת(/ ר' שמואל ראדי/עם ז' )זוגתו( שיינדיל לאה" "This is the donation of Rabbi Samuel Rodi with his wife Sheyndil Leah".

The central strip of the base bears crests flanked by bunches of grapes and grape leaves. The undulating shaft is composed of a compressed globe circumfered by a ring of flowers and leaves, surmounted by a tapering cylindrical shaft depicting a river with floating swans and fish. The cup socket is shaped like a vase and is composed of a thick ring surmounted by a cup bearing foliate scrolls. The rim of the cup widen outwards and are decorated with petals that radiate from the center.
