And he distributed to each one of the children of Israel (1st Chronicles 16:3)Hazorfim’s wine fountains are known throughout the world for their rare beauty and grandiose style. This opulent, pure silver wine fountain dispenses wine to tiny silver cup each lined with gold to preserve the flavour and quality of the wine. The Filigree 8 Cup Wine Fountain indulges the ancient secrets of Yemenite Jewry’s silversmiths, reminding us of the patterns they have made famous. Hazorfim’s expert silver artists patiently weave and twist tiny wires of pure silver- repeating this task until the traditional decorations which adorn each cup are complete. All that remains is to pour the wine and distribute the beauty, strength and delight that this piece gives to the children of Israel. This model was designed specifically for 8 diners.
At Hazorfim, we chose to design a collection to pay homage to the special art of the Jews of Yemen and so we created the Filigree Collection, the central motif being crafted filigree. Filigree is the art of decorating by using fine silver threads spliced and wound in artistic patterns to form large, impressive silver decorations which adorn the pieces.
Filigree requires infinite patience as the craftsman persistently returns hundreds or thousands of times to the basic decoration pattern creating the spectacular adornments on the edges of each piece.
