Mezuzah Case – Blackened Brass
Modeled after an Esther scroll case from Poland, mid-19th century
Not only is affixing a mezuzah to one’s doorpost a commandment (which appears twice in the Book of Deuteronomy), the mezuzah is also the first part of your home to catch the visitor’s eye. It should therefore be special and reflect your taste.
The floral and bird motifs that adorn this mezuzah case were inspired by an Esther scroll case crafted in mid-19th-century Poland. The case is made of gilt silver, overlaid with cut silver in a lace-like pattern. This elegant design grants depth and color to an object traditionally offered as a gift to a groom. And indeed, the inscription engraved on the Esther scroll case indicates that it was presented to a groom as an engagement gift.
The original item is in the Israel Museum collection.
