The French Door Mezuzah is influenced by the text found in the Deuteronomy 11: “And you shall write [these words] upon the doorposts of your house.” A sterling silver structure in the form of a French door was created to house the holy parchment. The doors have gold-plated handles and hinges. Adorning the doors is a gold-plated “Shin” which resembles the royal crest common to the Renaissance period. Each creation is signed by the artist.
