Technically speaking, this Menorah is not Kosher, because the flames are in a circle. Unknown country of origin,or maker.

Marked STERLING on the bottom of the base. The piece measures 7 1/2" in overall height, and weights 162 grams.

It has been polished, as seen in the photographs.

The center section would hold the olive oil, and the removable cover has openings for the cotton wicks which would reach down to get the oil.

The piece is properly balanced, quite heavy in weight for its size, and well made.

    Not a menorah. It is a spice box.
