Vintage Zelig Segal silver plate memorial Yahrtzeit candle holder with modern styling, circa 1985.
This Yahrtzeit (memorial candle) container was made from a single sheet of metal (silver over brass); it is horizontally pierced, with a pocket pulled from the sheet (as if it had been clay or other plastic material) forming a place in which to set the memorial candles. The concave back forms a reflector for the flame and contains applied metal Hebrew letters forming the word ""Zechor"" or “Remember.”
Zelig Segal, Israeli artist, designer, sculptor, and metalsmith Zelig Segal has devoted his career to the creation of ritual objects. His ingenious approaches to ceremonial art are fresh, imaginative, and infused with deep understanding of Jewish tradition.
