Judaic needlework piece with flowers and Hebrew writing. I originally believed this to be a Tallis Bag to hold a Ceremonial Shawl, but have recently been informed it is an Affikoman Bag, used to store and preserve the Afikomen from the Passover seder. Measures 16.5 x 20 inches, in a pentagon shape with 2 inch metallic fringe. Appears to be some sort of cover. In poor condition with spots, stains, and fringe wear. This item was part of Laura Fisher’s estate.
