This listing consist of a Sterling Silver Kiddush Cup for the Jewish Friday night ritual of prayer. This cup measures 5-1/4" x 2 1/2" inches wide at the mouth. The cup has a gorgeous filigree that heightens the bright colors of the turquoise cabochons. The gemstones measure 5/8 of an inch in diameter and have a nice bright color. Around them is some superb twisted wire-work in silver, and granulation, which creates a repeating flower-like motif. Around the base of the cup and where the stalk meets the curving bowl we also see detail work of this kind. At the bottom, the cup is marked with the words: ISRAEL, as well as 925, indicating its sterling purity. It fits nicely into the hand, with minor dents and wear. The cup weighs 2.04 troy ounces. Please email me with any questions.
