This petite 8 arm silver candelabra is part of a beautiful classic collection of Judaica silver pieces created by the original master silversmith at Hazorfim, Joseph Merdinger. They are all of very high caliber and are the artist’s impression and rendition of the stately styles seen in pre-war Europe that he toiled to revive and preserve after coming to Israel.
Rich curly lines and heavy engravings all put together to form classic pieces are what set this collection above its peers. This specific 8 branch sterling silver candelabra is 40 cm high and highly decorated. From its curly feet to its beautifully round base wrapped in a strong silver grip and then up to its curvy trunk and highly embellished branches and cup holders, the artist spared no effort in reviving the art that was so treasured and featured in Jewish homes for centuries.
The cup holders fitted on this silver candelabra centerpiece are very curved and end with an outward turned lip which flattens out and features beautiful engravings on the rim, a unique design not seen in so many candelabras. The branches are also cheerily curved and highly designed to add a joy to anyone who happens to gaze at them.

The Ben-Yehuda Collection is the first designed by the late Joseph Merdinger for Hazorfim and is influenced by the baroque-style typical of Austro-Hungarian Jews. Merdinger escaped Europe before the war, carrying only a suitcase containing his silversmith’s tools and his vision for "Hazorfim"- a company to revive the tradition of Jewish jewelry making and the traditional skills of hand-made silver art in the Land of Israel.
The elegant pieces which make-up the Ben-Yehuda Collection, are Joseph’s interpretation of classic imperial designs made famous by Jewish silversmiths from northern Europe.
