Two silver-plated Kiddush chalices (no hallmarks) used on the Jewish Sabbath.
Kiddush literally means sanctification and is the blessing that is given at the beginning of the Shabbat and holidays. On Friday evening and Saturday morning before the start of the main meal, a blessing is given over a glass or cup of wine, grape juice. The engraving concerns a crown (on both sides of the chalices) myrtle branches whereby the crown represents God's kingship over the world.
Chalices or cups are in good condition with small scratches and dull spots due to polishing over the years. Both are 21 cm tall.
