  Dreydl (Eretz Israel, early 20th century)

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1992

The cubical dreidl is decorated with depictions of holy places and a map of Eretz Israel. Each scene is framed by a line of dots and includes an inscription of two words, each word from a separate sentence:

נס גדול היה פה "A great miracle happened here."

קרן קימת##לישראל##ירושלים "The Jewish National Fund Jerusalem."

A map of Eretz Israel accompanied by the abbreviation: א"י "The land of Israel", is depicted on one of the sides. The map shows the Mediterranean coast, the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee.

Holy places (Abshalom's Tomb, David's Tower and the Western Wall) are depicted on the other sides.

The handle is chipped.
