Besaminka Ceramic Spice Box by Mi Polin
The shape of this fine ceramic spice box and the scrollwork pattern on the front are inspired by traditional sterling filigree spice boxes from Europe or Israel. Mi Polin's modern take uses white ceramic with gold metallic accents. Remove the lid to smell the spice during the Havdalah service. Made in Poland.
Mi Polin means “from Poland” in Hebrew. Mi Polin is the first brand that designs and produces Judaica in Poland since the end of World War II, the Holocaust, and 45 years of communism. Mi Polin is a contemporary design studio specializing in Jewish objects, branding for Jewish institutions, and graphic design. Their design refers to "hiddur micva", which demands that ritual artifacts be beautiful, but also emphasizes their multi-faceted nature. Mi Polin was founded by Aleksander Prugar and Helena Czernek.
