Wine Vessel with Hebrew Inscription
Not on view
The Hebrew inscription on the brass cup names the Georgian maker, Shelomo the Tblisian, and its function as a ritual wine vessel, while its decoration derives from Seljuq metalwork. Georgia’s well-established Jewish community emigrated to the country in the sixth century b.c. and had close ties to Baghdad and Iran in the twelfth century.
