Musings of a Dinosaur

Fourth Night of Hanukkah

This was a Christmas gift (mixed family; told you I was easy to buy for) from my parents last year:

The illustration is from an Italian tapestry, circa 1700, and shows the Temple Menorah in the center. On the left is Moses holding the commandments, with his brother Aaron on the right.

Really lovely, but then all of them have been.

Oh, I do like this one. It looks almost antique. What's it sitting on?

It came with a matching tray; I suppose to catch the wax/protect the table. It's far too magnificent to actually use for candles.

Goodness, this one is really special.

I think this one is seriously beautiful. Looks as though the Menorah dates from around 1700 too.
