Lazarus Posen Witwe, Germany. Naturalistically formed 800 silver bowl with a handle in the form of two joined twigs wrapped in cord. Marked along the underside with maker's marks, 800, crescent, and crown.

Lazarus Posen Witwe was owned and directed by Brendina Wetzler, the widow of Lazarus Posen, who was a Jewish woman. The firm was founded in Frankfurt am Main in 1869 Wetzler, a silversmith and retailer of Polish descent. By the late 19th century, the firm became the largest supplier of Judaica. The firm continued to grow and expand throughout the late 19th and early 20th century. Though the exact date of the company’s closure is not known, it is very likely that the shop was closed and destroyed under the Nazi regime.

(With handle) Height: 5 1/2 in x width: 5 in x depth: 6 in. Weight: 190.7 grams.
