Deep Glass Plate- Golden Menorah
Glass Plate with Replica of Gold-Glass Base from Rome, 4th Century
The great majority of gold-glass bases were discovered in Rome. They were decorated in various motifs, less than twenty of which are distinctly Jewish. These bases, used as supports for different vessels, were made of three layers – two layers of glass encasing a layer of gold leaf. The modern replica is a glass plate printed with decorations inspired by the ancient base.
In the ancient image, the gold-leaf motif is set within a round glass frame. Depicted at the top is a Torah Ark, its doors open to reveal three shelves, on each of which are three scrolls; flanking the Ark are two birds standing on globes, and beneath it is a seven-branched menorah. Also depicted are a shofar (ram’s horn), a lulav (palm branch), an etrog (citron), and a small jar above a pair of lions facing each other.
