Silver pendant with the Star of David, 20th century – USD 300

This carved mother-of-pearl pendant, featuring the Star of David, is similar to ones made in the 20th century in Bethlehem and Jerusalem, where there is a long tradition of carving mother of pearl.

The Star of David, which can be found in synagogues and on tombstones since antiquity, came to be identified with Zionism and appears on the Israeli flag. The object could be displayed in a showcase at the Resource Center.
