Celebrate the once-vibrant Spanish Jewish community with this unique Passover Seder dish from the Israel Museum collection. Made from porcelain, this plate boasts an intricate red floral and geometric design with a beautiful blue circle in the center surrounded by the words "Pesach" (Passover lamb), "Matzah" (Unleavened Bread), "Maror" (Bitter Herbs) and "Seder" (Passover Dinner). Based on an actual Passover plate from before the expulsion of Spanish Jewry in 1492, the words surrounding the circle are misspelled, leading to the belief that the original plate was designed by someone without knowledge of Hebrew. Rich in color and featuring a unique design, this plate is perfect for anyone with an appreciation of Jewish history and who wishes to enhance their celebration of the exodus from Egypt.
Note: the plate is pictured with the matching porcelain dishes, available at an additional charge.
For an additional $74.00 you can add the six matching porcelain dishes.
Each of the small dishes has a diameter of 3.4" / 8.5 cm.
