This plate could have been used on the Sabbath or, more likely, during the Purim holiday celebrated in the month of Adar, which symbol is fish, used as an decoration motif in this exhibit.
A tin plate decorated with engraved fish in the mirror and the image of two fish facing each other on the collar, between them monogram „T S” was placed. The engraving on the collar is clearly older than the engraving on the plate mirror. On its reverse, the engraving with the „T S” letters was repeated, and below it, in the middle, three punches were placed (two of which are the same), which were the signs of the Saxon town of Zwickau and master Christian Gotthold Scherfig (master since 1780).
The plate decoration in the form of an engraved image of a fish is undoubtedly linked to the separation of meat dishes from dairy dishes in the Jewish religion. They were prepared and served with the use of separate utensils. On the plate, there are visible traces of use in the form of numerous cracks and dents.
