By Herfurth, Rotger (German, 1722–1776)
This superbly wrought Hanukkah lamp is an important piece of German Judaica and an exceptional example of eighteenth century German silversmithing.
This fine silver Menorah or Hanukkah lamp is by the German silversmith Rotger Herfurth, who lived from 1722 to 1776. The Menorah features a silver backplate decorated with a moulded candelabrum set within a crowned cartouche, which is flanked by two stylised lions. The oil lights are set below beneath a hinged cover, and the Menorah features a removable light, or Shamash, to the side.
The piece is marked to the body, backplate, and cover for Herfurth.
A very similar Menorah of the same size and by the same maker is in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, USA, on view in the Judaica Gallery.
