  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Hanukkah Lamp, late 19th century
    Acquistion Gift of Dr Harry G Friedman F 3391 On View Keywords Hanukkah Metalwork Revival styles Collection Area Ceremonial Art Submit Picture Request On the backplate of this lamp is a wreath with a pointed hat in the center This is a depiction of the distinctive headgear mandated to Jews in the Middle Ages to differentiate them from Christians It eventually came to be the symbol by which Jews were recognized and as early as the 1620s was adopted as the emblem of the Jewish community of Prague where it appears on the Prague Jewish butcher s guild key and on community seals A nineteenth century tradition holds that the symbol was awarded to the Jews by Emperor Ferdinand III in 1648 after the Jews had helped in the defense of Prague against a Swedish siege and it became known as the Swedish hat However given the fact that it was in use before 1648 and that there is no record in the extensive annals of the region of this imperial award this tradition seems to have little basis in fact There are only a few lamp types from Bohemia and Moravia that were cast in copper alloy These were possibly inspired by the more common eastern European lamps A number of construction features are the same the use of separate parts assembled with tenons or screws in the same position and the shape of the oil containers One major difference is in the sidepieces which in Czech lamps are thin solid and often in the shape of human figures In addition the two candleholders so characteristic of eastern European lamps are absent on Czech examples The sidepieces on lamps of this type consist of figures of Moses and Aaron The poorness of the casting which lacks the surface detail found in other examples suggests this is a later version of the lamp Source Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 149 Bibliography Braunstein Susan FIVE CENTURIES OF HANUKKAH LAMPS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM A CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 149 Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 149 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle speed true data cycle manual trump false data cycle swipe true data cycle prev cycle prev data cycle next cycle next David Bomberg British 1890 1957 Hear O Israel Learn More Chana Orloff French b Ukraine 1888 1968 Portrait of Madame Peretz Hirshbein Learn More Necklace Learn More Gyula Pap Hungarian 1889 1983 Seven branch Candelabrum Learn More Elie Nadelman American b Poland 1882 1946 Dancer Learn More Michael Berkowitz American b 1952 Marriage Dress Fashions for the Millennium Protective Amulet
