Overview

A adaptation of a kiddush cup from the early 20th century from Frankfurt, Germany. The original cup, a masterpiece of the silversmith's art, is in the Museum's permanent collection. The petal-like repoussée on the lower portion of the cup is repeated on the foot and the slender stem is delicately wrought with stylized leaves. The kiddush cup has been reproduced in sterling silver with gilt on a slightly reduced scale for modern use. Made in the USA.

Designer Info


Galmer Fine Silver was founded by Michael Izrael Galmer in Long Island City, New York, in 1981. Having just arrived to the US from his native Russia along with his wife, Galina and young daughter, Zina - the artist soon set up workshop in a garage. His doctorate in physics & chemistry, combined with a love of art & sculpture, melded perfectly as a platform for perfecting his skills and inventing creative and unique alternatives to silver making. 

Committed to the ancient art of repoussé (meaning “pushing-from-the-back”), Galmer began producing ravishing silver works reminiscent of early 1900 American tabletop. He and his workshop quickly became legendary for their custom silver creations commissioned by connoisseurs, collectors and museums. 

In addition to creating his own unique designs, Michael's craftsmanship extends to the art of high-quality museum reproductions. He has expertly crafted reproductions in silver and metal of several works from the Jewish Museum's permanent collection to be sold in the museum shop.  Each piece is a careful reproduction of the original to be treasured as an heirloom for future generations.
