This beautiful sterling silver filigree mezuzah case is made in Israel in the Yemenite tradition.


Yemenite silversmiths, a trade held almost exclusively by Jews living in the traditional Yemeni society, were active from at least as far back as the mid 1700's. The largest clientele for jewelry made of gold and silver were women, and the amount of jewelry worn was often an indicator of the woman's status. Some Yemenite silversmiths migrated to Israel in the late 1800's, a migration that continued in the early 1900's. In the early 20th-century, the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design employed many Yemenites in the production of fine silver jewellery.
