Not a Family Heirloom, but a Family Holiday

Just wishing you a Happy Hanukkah. I have a party to plan, so I will be back next week!

This menorah is not a family heirloom, but one purchased in an antique store by the gardener. I’ve found several like this online. They appear to be circa 1920 or perhaps a bit before.

If you would like to see a museum quality menorah, here is a link to a menorah from 18th century – mid-19th century from Eastern Galicia or Western Ukraine HERE.

Blessings be with you this festival of lights!

See you next week.

  1. Happy Hanukkah, Luanne! Hope you have a wonderful party!
    We had a very similar menorah when I was growing up. I think my mom gave it to my niece, and then it broke. You always lead me to new questions–now I need to ask my mom if she remembers where they got it. (They did have an antiques business, so my dad may have picked it somewhere along the line.)
