  1. Sorry, this is not a Marrano piece at all. It is actually a fantasy piece — there never was such a thing made. It was an item made for tourists in Spain and Portugal during the 1950's through the 1970's. Pretty and nice, but no historic value. Please see page 227 of "A Collector's Guide to Judaica" by Jay Weinstein where he discusses this exact type of item.
