Folding "Shana Tova" card, with portraits of Jewish and Zionist figures and a picture of the participants of the First Zionist Congress. [U.S.?, early 20th century].
The outer side of the card is made of embossed gold paper with decorations showing stretched-out hands offering greeting cards and flowers. The card opens into two parts, and each part opens on its inner and outer side, like a window with two flaps. Printed inside the card are Shana Tova greetings (in Hebrew, English, German and Russian) alongside painted and photographed portraits of figures from Jewish history, rabbis and Zionist figures, including: Moses and Aaron the Priest, the Vilna Gaon, Rabbi Yitzhak Elhanan Spector, Rabbi Tsadok Cohen, Theodor Herzl, Max Nordau, Moses Montefiore, Baron Hirsch, Baron Rothschild and others, as well as a composite photograph of all the delegates to the First Zionist Congress, which took place in 1897. The card's margins are decorated with fringes and red strings for tying.
Folded card: 8.5X12 cm. Good condition. Stains, tears and small open tears to gold paper. Light stains to card's inner side. Some fringes missing.
