Armenian Ceramic Seder Plate with Jerusalem Motif
Bring Jerusalem to your Seder with this colorful depiction of the famous Old City of Jerusalem known for its pine trees, gleaming gold rooftops, the Jerusalem stone and the rich, ancient colorful buildings.
Jerusalem, the holy city is important in the heart of every Jew and hence Jews recite the phrase "Im Eshkachech Yerusalayim, Tishkach Yemini"- "If I forget thee O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget her cunning". This Seder plate has a beautiful depiction of Jerusalem in all its glory of rich colors and tall pine trees. The use of clay represents the ancient stone of Jerusalem known for its gold gleam when reflected by the sun. The colors of orange, red, yellow, blue and green offer an opulent appearance and the blue border is that of a typical Armenian design. Pesach is painted in Bold Hebrew letters in the center and among the Jerusalem design, circles with black borders are painted for the food objects placed on the Seder plate, in Hebrew and English.
This Seder plate can be used as a decorative ornament and used on Passover with the matching items in the collection to serve guests.
Bring a touch of art, history, culture and Jerusalem to someone's home with this lovely piece.
Note: Armenian ceramics are delicate and should be treated with care. Each piece is individually hand made with the ancient skill of mixing and shaping clay and water and then placing the object in an oven or kiln at a temperature of 1000°C until it hardens. The piece is then beautifully hand painted with metallic and oxidized paint, maintaining a natural color and then placed again in the oven at the same temperature. The finishing touch is one of fine glazing.
