Art HistoryMaster silversmith David Heinz Gumbel (Israeli, born Germany, 1896–1992) was greatly influenced by the Bauhaus school of architecture and industrial design in Germany, and incorporated its aesthetic into his Judaica works. He designed the original Hanukkah lamp, on which the Museum's version is based, around 1930. Shortly after, he fled his native Germany to Palestine. Our elegant reproduction is a numbered edition of 1,000.
