This cup is a reproduction of a 19th-century kiddush cup from Iran. The original, a masterpiece of the silversmith's art, is in The Jewish Museum's permanent collection. A profusion of vines, blossoms and birds surrounds the figures of the two Israelite spies who return from Canaan with proof of the abundance of the land. The kiddush cup had been reproduced on a reduced scale for modern use. The inscription around the rim expresses the traditional Hebrew blessing over wine, "Blessed art thou O Lord our G-d, King of the Universe, who has created the fruit of the vine." Finely crafted in sterling silver with a gold-wash interior. Made in the USA.
