scene is the exodus from Egypt, copied from the 1695 Amsterdam Haggadah.
Around the rim are depictions of the ten plagues from the Passover
story. Seven of these plagues are also patterned after the same Amsterdam
Haggadah. The other plates in the group are in the Jewish Museum in
Cracow, the Janger Collection in Chicago and the Prague Jewish Musem (this
plate has the zodiac around the rim rather than the ten plagues). It is
not known whether these plates were used in the Passover eve ceremonies
or were simply decorative.
