SEDER PLATE by David Gumbel is a true masterpiece of the acknowledged "Dean" of Israeli silversmiths. Gumbel trained in the Bauhaus and was a professor at the Betzalel Art Academy in Jerusalem until he passed away at the age of 90. Gumbel used various techniques and finishes to create a functional Seder Plate of stunning clean-lined beauty . Three levels under the round tray, conceal the three matzot during the Seder ritual. Beautiful repousse Hebrew letters around the edges of the three levels proclaim: "From slavery to freedom; from agony to joy; from darkness to great light."
Six, raised disc-shaped saucers have glass inserts to hold the traditional Seder foods. A magnificent Cup of Elijah rises up from the center of the Seder Plate and. The shaft of the cup has the repousse Hebrew phrase: "Elijah the prophet, Elijah the Tishbite, Elijah the Giladite." This Judaica sculpture is one of three pieces created out of specially thick sterling silver. For the true connoisseur and collector.
