Table Dish of Rebbe Rashab of Lubavitch - With Certificate of Authenticity Signed by His Granddaughter Rebbetzin Chana Gurary
Table dish of Rebbe Shalom Dov Ber Schneerson, Rebbe Rashab of Lubavitch.
Oval silver-plated table dish, with an ornate handle and hinged cover (meant to serve as a butter dish). Made by Philip Ashberry & Sons, Sheffield, England, ca. late 19th century. The dish is adorned with foliate patterns and set on four legs. With a (later?) glass plate.
Letter of authenticity enclosed (handwritten note, in English), signed in Hebrew by Rebbetzin Chana Gurary (1899-1991), eldest daughter of Rebbe Rayatz: "I hereby gift... the food warmer used by my grandfather – the Rashab. Many days he would spent time writing. In order for his food not to get cold this food warmer was used. He bought it during one of his trips abroad". The letter is dated 5th November, 1989.
Rebbe Rashab suffered from various medical issues, and he would travel frequently to various health spas in Europe, to consult with specialists. His first trip was to Paris in winter 1884, approximately a year after the passing of his father Rebbe Maharash and his appointment as rebbe. Since then, he made several trips to other countries, some which lasted for over half a year, during the course of which he delt extensively with communal matters. The Rashab visited France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Czechoslovakia, the Crimean Peninsula, and other places. Based on the enclosed letter of authenticity, Rebbe Rashab purchased this dish during one of his trips abroad.
Approx. 15X23X21 cm. Good condition. Silver plating worn in several places.
