The Jewish Yemenite Filigree Art was developed by Jewish silver and goldsmiths in ancient Yemen, and is related to Judaism and Judaica, being used particularly for religious holy occasions like marriage, engagement and more. This technique was commonly practiced in Yemen and in the art school Bezalel located in Jerusalem (established in 1906). Today very few craftsmen are practicing this wonderful skill, most of them passed away or moved to practice a more modern line of work, therefore real handmade filigree items are fairly hard to find.
Every item in Menorah Galleries is accompanied by a lifetime "Certificate of Authenticity" and additional documentation and information regarding the individual artifact and its culture.
