As one of the first designs at Hazorfim, this 10 branch silver candelabra symbolizes survival of our nation. After the war, the late Joseph Merdinger, arrived in the Holy Land with just his silversmith tools and the clothes on his back and this was the first set he conjured up. It has remained in Hazorfim’s collections as an active, popular collection ever since because it is so classic and never goes out of style.
Full of rich curves, engravings and highly polished elements, this 10 branch sterling silver candelabra is a beautiful addition to any Jewish home. Designed in predominantly baroque-style, often attributed to Austro-Hungarian Jews, this is one of the few silver candelabra centerpieces that we can’t get enough of.
This 10 tier candelabra stands on 4 embellished curly sterling silver feet and has a large, round solid base which looks like a silver ball being held like a diamond in its setting. A busy, highly embellished trunk, decorated with circular, grape clusters and leaf-shaped designs, leads up to the 10 rounded branches, which each have a drip pan directly under the candle holders.

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.
