Israeli made general metalware items

Please contact us for more info, pictures and prices


The displayed items were made by various makers, currently not well known as Pal-Bell or Oppenheim, but they are already collectible and we predict that they will become more known in future.

Some of those makers were employees at Pal-Bell and after a few years of 'learning the business' they opened their own workshop. Oppenheim was already known prior to the1950s and made items marked: "Hand Made in Palestine". Later they bought Pal-Bell from Moshe Klein and continued some product lines using Pal-Bell's moulds and their new logo.

During the transition period, we may see items marked with both logos and some have no marking at all, but the items were made by using the original Pal-Bell moulds. There are many original items made by Pal-Bell, not marked or not listed in the catalogues. Some were not marked because of technical reasons, no place to put the marks, like "Zohar" candlesticks 681 or even not all pitchers "Beer Sheva" # 61 have Pal-Bell's logo or name, just "Made in Israel" in English and in Hebrew. Because certain items were made in a modular interchangeable manner, we may see certain 'marriages', which might be very successful, all of them however, are highly collectible.

One should judge an item not according to its maker only, but according to the quality, rarity and its uniqueness. There are gorgeous items made by a relatively unknown maker, and at the same time we can see different quality items even by Pal-Bell. The early Pal-Bells are more valuable and they were made of solid and heavier material and with darker green 'verdigris' plating than the later ones.

It was a very 'rich' period with designers such as Raban and others, new immigrants from Europe and Russia that contributed significantly to innovative and unique Israeli products.

There are several makers that for some reason they did not add their logo or name to their products

They are marked below as 'unknown', however, they are marked 'Made in Israel' and sometime with Pat. #

The reasons for that might be: new products, experiments, special orders, selling to export or specific market, etc.
