“A land of brooks of water” (Deuteronomy 10:7)
A widespread Jewish custom known as mayim achronim is to wash the hands after a meal but before reciting grace after meals. The custom involves passing a small silver vessel filled with water and an accompanying silver dish, to greet the coming blessing with purity and splendor. The Bellagio Decorated Mayim Achronim is designed and inspired by the Italian village of Bellagio, which nests on the shores of Lake Como. The soft curves, delicate decorations and bright reflections from the pure silver are reminiscent of the mountain landscape which surrounds and is reflected in the lake. The body of this magnificent piece is hand made from pure silver and inspired by the noblemen’s houses which dot the landscape- a magical land of brooks of waters.
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.
