Here is a miniature piece in the form of the Florence synagogue.

*** This item is featured in a volume "500 Judaica" published by Lark Books, Sterling Publishing Co. N.Y. 2010. ***

The item consists of the following moving parts :

Two charity boxes — one on the left and one on the right.
Each box opens forward revealing a cylindrical storage space under the central dome. The dome is positioned on top of the cylinder and is secured by two internal snaps.

Two hidden magnets allow the facade to rotate along the horizontal axis. The facade encloses a small window
that displays the current page of Sphirat Ha-Omer Scroll. The Scroll is stretched on two vertical shafts under the front towers. The towers rotate from right to left effecting the successive appearance of the Sphirat Ha-Omer pages. The rear of the structure contains a cylindrical door leading to an empty niche for storing Shabbat candles and small items.

The marquetry decorations on the base plate echo ornamental motifs from the
Florence Synagogue floor.
