Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:

Charity is a major value within the Jewish Community and alms boxes to collect money for various ends were a regualr and normal part of Jewish life, both at home and at communal events. Several such vessels are in the Gross Family Collection both antique and modern, such as this one by the contemporary Jewish artisan Ya'akov Greenvourcel. This elegant container could be put at home or at the synagogue to collect charity. This is marked 1/99 and is the first of the series.
