A segula object – a chanukkiyah made of objects owned by tzaddikim of Rozin and Koznitz. Israel, 1950s
Silver chanukkiyah made by casting, hammer work, and welding. The base is circular with four legs, above which are two columns holding upside down bows upon which are standing a pair of gazelles facing a crown perched between them. On both sides are trees holding a plate bearing the candle-holders, with a place for placing the shamash. Weight: 259g. Approximately 25x10cm. Light defects, generally good condition. A segula object: the silver via which this chanukkiyah was cast was taken from fragments and parts of holy objects in the homes of tzaddikim, the Admorim: Rabbi Avraham Yaakov of Sadigura (the first) and Rabbi Haim Meir Yehiel Shapira of Moglanitza. They were acquired from the heirs of their grandson, the Admor Rabbi Avraham Yaakov Shapira of Drohovitch. It was made at the request of the Chassidic collector Rabbi Zenvil Kahane (certificate proving legal acquisition signed by the heirs will be given upon request).
