A Silver Inlaid Tray for PassoverSilver and copper inlay on brass, Syria, late 19th century. Unlike otherJewish silver inlaid trays from Syria (known as “Damascene”, as this kindof work was made famous by Jewish artisans in Damascus), this has noArabic writing whatsoever, which is highly unusual, as these types oftrays, when Hebrew verses are seen, at least one Arabic verse or saying ispresent as well. Not only does our tray lack any Arabic script, themultitude of Biblical scenes depicted is overwhelming, and they are allcaptioned in Hebrew.In the center, the daughter of Pharaoh is rescuing baby Moses in the Nileriver. Working our way clockwise, we come to Aaron, and his staffbecoming a snake before Pharaoh. Then, we see Moses raising his arm,when he struck the rock twice with his staff, and water gushed out of it.The next scene is the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt. The last scene isof Moses killing the Egyptian taskmaster.This elaborate tray was used at the Passover table, richly enhancing theholiday by having the viewer “re-live” scenes from the Bible which relateto Passover and our freedom from bondage in the land of Egypt.
