Sterling Silver Ornate Vintage Menorah Judaism Hanukkah Candelabra Sothebys Sale:
This is an exquisite, ornate, vintage solid sterling silver menorah / candelabra. It is 25 inches tall. It was made in 1896, as you can see in its mark; it is marked 84 for silver. The total weight is 1 kg, or 426 gr. But this menorah is not being sold based on weight, but rather as an antiqueAccording to my client, the piece was made in Poland and the silver marking is from Eastern Europe.This type of menorah was sold in Sotheby’s in approximately 1997-2001 in New York City for around $20,000. It is featured in their catalogue in those years, but we cannot locate the book at the moment,Antique dealers at the time said that only few of these menorahs were made at the time (about five).
Condition: It is in good overall antique condition, but it does have a flaw: one of the flower-scalloped candle holders is bent. You can see this on the left side as you are looking at the menorah in the photos. If needed, the owners can fix it. Again, it is 25 inches tall. Menorah is solid sterling silver, intricately designed, Background items are for context. Could use a little silver polish but I leave that up to the new owner. Local pickup only in the Washington, DC / McLean, Virginia area. Please see all photos and ask any questions up front.
Again, Local Pickup only. Menorah is very heavy.
