Lot Number 4

Friday Night (Erev Shabat) Picture – Good Angel and Evil Angel

Colored printed picture of Friday night dinner, good angel and evil angel. Lithographic print A. Wallraf, Germany, end of 19th century.
In the center is an illustration of parents with their four children coming to have Friday night dinner in their grandparents' home. Grandmother blesses the children (Frankfurt custom), lit candles in a Shabat Menorah (typical of German Jews) and the table is set. On the upper right corner is a pleased good angel holding the writing: "may it be like that in any other Shabat" and on the left upper corner the disappointed evil angel, holding writing: "the evil angel is forced to say Amen". [according to the sayings of Rabbi Yossi Bar Yehodah in Tractate Shabat 119 page 2].
On the bottom is a German writing "See, this way the man observing G-d will be blessed". It is obvious that the printer did not know Hebrew well as some Hebrew letters are incorrect.
48 X 38.5 cm, pasted to cloth. Poor condition. Tears and rough stains.
