  Shabbat and Holiday Challah Cover, Vienna, 1864

© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Bar Hama, Ardon, -

The following description was prepared by William Gross:   

Shabbat cloths were printed in several places, mainly in Jerusalem. This is an exceptionally rare example from Vienna. Printed in black ink on red fabric, the cloth depicts the figures of Moses and Aaron on the top of pillars on the sides. The textile is imprinted with the blessings over the wine for the Sabbath, the three pilgrimage holidays and the New Year celebration. This example, printed in Vienna at the extremely early date for such textiles in 1864 and is one of the first such printed textiles of this type known.     Inscription:  Kidush le-Shabbat ule-Sheloshah Regalim........
