  Kiddush Cloth, Augsburg, 1764/65

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

The following description was prepared by William Gross:   

 This textile is an extraordinary printed cloth from the middle of the 18th century with woodblock printed blessings for the Kiddush for Shabbat and festivals. A large object of which only one other copy  with this decorative program is recorded, that in the Jewish Museum in New York (F4090). The present example is cut at the top and bottom by about 15 cm compared to the complete example in the JMNY. There are two other variations known that have been sold at auction in Israel over the last several years. Jewish textiles that were in frequent use did not usually survive from the deterioration of use. That such a large and elegant fabric should have come down to us after 250 years is of particular note. The use of putti figures is evidence of the integration of the design of Jewish objects with surrounding cultures.
