Vintage Thursday Thingie: Jewish New Year's Card

This is a vintage Israeli New Year's Card from 1948-the year of the War of Independence. The Hebrew says "A Year of Peace and Victory".

The artist's name is Maachal, but even after I sent DS on the trail, we could find nothing more about him/her.

This was given to me, framed, by my brother-in-law and sister-in =law: I'd say they know I like vintage!

For more vintage treasures, hop on over to Coloradolady...I'm sure you'll enjoy what you see!

(BTW, after a week of computer troubles, I finally posted the pattern from the vintage Bonnet Girl coverlet-its the post just below this one.)

Part of the fun with vintage is looking into the history of the piece. The origin may show up when you least expect it.
Thanks for sharing!
Living it up at Lakewood,

What a great piece of history! And your bonnet girl quilt is going to be adorable, especially since some of the backgrounds will be pink! How sweet!
Happy VTT!

That is a very good idea of framing the older cards. It preserves them better. I wish I had done that with some of mine. A very nice VTT post.

That looks nice framed.

That looks like a postcard--is it?

This card is definitely an important reminder of Israel's history. What a great gift.
