Lithographed tin, circa 1930. The highly detailed center scene depicts a large mansion made of stone, surrounded by walls and cypress trees, with the elderly (holding canes), just outside the entrance. Upper corners of this scene show close-ups of elderly religious Jews, perhaps Rabbis. Some letters in the words “Jerusalem Palestine”, namely, the “R” and “S”, are stylized in the Art Deco fashion, popular at the time this charity box was issued. The United Aged Home Moshab Sekenim was a charity that was established in 1925 on 42nd street in New York City. Funds were collected and transferred to this old age home in Jerusalem.Lithographed tin, circa 1930.
