The Ben Yehuda collection at Hazorfim, which this 9 candle candelabra is a privileged member of, features a unique history, and produces magnificent pieces of silver art. The collection was designed by the late Joseph Merdinger, who fled from Europe before the war, taking along only his silversmith tools and his image for Hazorfim- an establishment where Jews would again create jewelry practicing the handcrafting skills customarily used by silversmiths. The pieces in this collection are made in the typical imperial designs, and in the elaborate styles of the Austro-Hungarian Jews.
Four finely carved legs support the arched base of this sterling silver 9 light candelabra, which narrows greatly, and then changes into a round, bulb-like stem, that thins as it climbs. The stem rises proudly to hold the arms, which curve up and down, twirling back around to carry the round drip pans sitting beneath circular cups, which thin under the rim. Each part of this spectacular silver table candelabra boasts ornate engravings and embellishments, creating a piece which is simply breathtaking, and a beautiful home for your Shabbat candles.

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.
