Beautiful Hanukkiah. Also known as a 9-armed candelabrum. This candelabrum is made of copper or brass and stands on lion feet.
Meaning: this candelabrum is used for the Jewish feast called Hanukkah.
During the first night of the festival one candle is lit, during the second night the second candle is lit, etcetera until the eighth night.
The ninth candle, sjammes (Yiddish) or shamash, is the "servant candle" used to light the other eight candles and it serves as light source in general, because the other candles are traditionally not used for lighting purposes.
