Sterling silver Menorah
This sterling silver Menorah arrived for repair and polishing. The arms would no longer sit on top and were held in place with white first-aid tape. It was originally purchased in Israel in the mid-20th century. The customer wanted the arms to firmly sit on top, but be easy to disassemble for polishing without needing special tools.
Watch this video to see this innovative repair that avoided altering the original menorah and satisfied the customers expectations. After the repair the lacquer was removed from the candlestick, and the menorah was polished. It turned out amazing.
This mid-20th century Chanukah Menorah was missing a candle cup for the shamash. The challenge was to make a new candle cup that matched both the shape and the aesthetic of the original menorah. An additional concern was to avoid damaging the oxidized patina and original finish on the rest of this menorah constructed from sterling silver, brass and copper.
