Armenian Ceramic Havdalah Set
Just as the Shabbat is ushered in with a ceremony, so too, do we bid goodbye to the Shabbat in a short service called Havdalah (to separate or divide). This service separates the Shabbat from the rest of the ordinary weekdays.
The Havdalah set is used on Saturday night to bid the Sabbath farewell. The set consists of a tray, Kiddush cup, spice box and candlestick which are decorated in a colorful floral design that catches the eye immediately. The tray is painted bordered with a blue outline which leads into the floral motif and then to the focal center. The center boasts a wreath of the seven species which envelop a Star of David and the Hebrew words "Hamavdil Ben Kodesh Lechol" from the Havdalah prayer which mean "to separate the holiness from the everyday". The Kiddush cup, candlestick and spice box contain the same floral motif which ties the whole look together.
This Havdalah set can be used a decorative piece as well as during the wonderful Havdalah ceremony.
Note: Armenian ceramics are delicate and should be treated with care. Each piece is individually hand made with the ancient skill of mixing and shaping clay and water and then placing the object in an oven or kiln at a temperature of 1000°C until it hardens. The piece is then beautifully hand painted with metallic and oxidized paint, maintaining a natural color and then placed again in the oven at the same temperature. The finishing touch is one of fine glazing.This Havdalah set includes a tray, Kiddush cup, candlestick and spice box.
