Workshop of Bezalel Academy (Jerusalem, founded 1906)
With a remarkable history, these unique objects are invaluable as much for the great artistry of their decoration as for the story behind them.
This set of objects consists of fifteen brass shell cases, originally used in WWI, with the locations of each marked on the underside, and which have subsequently been decorated, by Bezalel artists in Jerusalem in the 1930's. Each piece is inlaid and engraved with a silver and copper decorative Jewish motif, all different, and many are stamped on the base for the Bezalel academy.
Established in 1906, the Academy is now Israel's preeminent academy of arts and design, and many pieces that date from this time period are pieces of metalwork which have been repurposed and reused for artistic and decorative use, such as these. They can be appreciated both as decorative and religious objects, but also for their artistic merit and their remarkable history.
