This small glass mug, which bears the word "pesah" (Heb.: Passover), was for the pejsachówka - vodka that is part of the Passover seder. Manufactured during the interwar period, it was found in the early 1950s, miraculously intact, in the rubble of the Warsaw Ghetto near Dzika Street, where POLIN Museum is now located.

Currently the mug is exhibited at the temporary exhibition "What’s Cooking? Jewish Culinary Culture".
