Passover Seder Plate with Exodus Scene, Ceramic
Replica of a plate from Alsace, second half of the 19th century
Inscribed on the rim of the plate are the words that, according to Rabban Gamaliel, must be recited on Passover Eve to fulfill one’s obligation: Pesah (Passover), Matzah (unleavened bread), and Maror (bitter herbs). The illustration at the plate’s center, apparently depicting the Exodus, is probably based on Orientalist prints from the mid- to late 19th century. Such prints, featuring fanciful scenes of the East, captured the European imagination and spread throughout the continent.
The original is in the Collection of Eliezer Burstein, Lugano, in the Israel Museum.
