This Steampunk Menorah Provides a Punked-Out Way to Worship

This steampunk menorah is a functioning 7-branch candelabrum used in Judaism and Jewish tradition. The candles are represented by vintage vacuum tubes, lit by power LEDs from below and set in a machined-hardwood slat. Each tube on the steampunk menorah is surrounded by a brass plate with David's star etched on it. Brass acorn nuts and patina give it a distinct steampunk character, while the upcycled clutch hub used as a base adds an industrial flavor. The switch is also handmade of hardwood and brass and attached to the fabric-covered cable, feeding 12 volts.

This steampunk menorah is a so-called Temple menorah, as opposed to the 9-branch Chanukah menorah. Unlike Chanukah menorahs, where candles are lit one by one, the Temple menorah burns all candles at all times. Stats for Vintage Victorian Menorahs Trending: Older & Mild
