“May mountains bring peace” (Psalms 72:3)
From generation to generation, Jews have fulfilled the mitzvah of bringing together the fruit of a beautiful tree with palm fronds, myrtle and willow branches. Maintaining the beauty and fragrance of the Etrog is paramount as even the slightest blemish disqualifies this beautiful fruit- thus was born the custom of storing the Etrog in an elegant silver case. The Bellagio Berlin Etrog Box is inspired by the magical, beautiful and ancient Italian village which rests on the shores of Lake Como. The form and height of this beautiful Etrog box is influenced by the themes of Romanesque architecture, found in Italy during the middle ages. The result is a pure silver Etrog box which stands tall and proud and is covered in exquisite decorations as it waits ready to house the beautiful Etrog fruit.
Pieces from the Bellagio Collection are handcrafted from pure silver using traditional hand-craft techniques. The collection gets its name from the ancient Italian village of Bellagio, on the shores of Lake Como. The collection draws its inspiration from the beautiful scenery surrounding the lake; the mountains reflected in the water and the estates built by Lombard aristocrats which surround it. Each pure silver piece in the Bellagio Collection is enlivened with delicate hand-crafted decorations.
