Identifier:
1999.69.1
Description:
While the provenance of this Menorah is only partially known, it was likely brought to Grand Rapids by Jewish emmigrants from Poland and sold to Heffner's Jewelers of Grand Rapids.  The donor bought it from Heffner's around 1980. It is a beautiful example of its type, with seven turned candle sockets and bobeches, which screw onto arms. The arms or brackets form a single piece beneath the sockets with a pierced design of intricate flowers and flourishes surrounding silhouettes of two lions and four rams. The bracket section screws onto a ring and vase-turned stem, which screws onto a ring-turned base.
