Counting Down To Chanukah

Dollhouse hanukkah lamp

Both ornate and elegant, this mini-dollhouse from our museum reminds of Chanukah’s eternal appeal to children. Wallpaper-like rear walls and intricate lamps indicate ties to 1800’s Bohemia. Embossed and pressed in sterling silver, the lamp portion can be removed for cleaning (and playtime), while the Swiss clock can be wound through the top French window.

Despite earlier occupational restrictions and expulsions into the Czech countryside, roughly 30000 thrived in Bohemia in 1754. They would soon enjoy greater legal freedoms starting in 1782 with the advancement of the Jewish Enlightenment.
