First Night of Hanukkah

This was the first really nice menorah I bought myself. It's about six inches high, nine inches wide and over an inch thick, made of heavy glass. I call it "The Shofar" because of the shape of the blue glass.


The candle holders are little pewter cones stuck into the top, with the shammas in the mouth of the shofar. Doesn't the clear part look like water flowing in a bowl? It's all solid glass, though.

This is so lovely! I agree with you about the "water flowing in a bowl". What color candles do you use?

Beautiful! We have one menorah that's falling apart - time to get a new one...

Happy Hanukkah!

This is lovely enough to use as decoration, seasonal or otherwise. The glass almost looks like wax in the smaller photo. Here's looking forward to tomorrow's!

It's the most beautiful menorah I've ever seen. It's truly a work of art.

Happy Hanukkah!

It is truly beautiful. For me, it is just past the first Sunday in Advent, but to you I wish Happy Hanukkah.

It's gorgeous -- that really does look like rippling water in there!

That's a beautiful piece - will you show us a photo when the candles are in it and lit?
