Vintage 1948 Israeli Hanging Music Box Thorens Movement Hatikvah Arthur Szyk Ex For Sale
VINTAGE 1948 ISRAELI HANGING MUSIC BOX
MOVEMENT "HATIKVAH" ARTHUR SZYK
For sale is this rare vintage
1948 Swiss made, guilded wall hanging music box that has a Thorens Movement. It
Measures 7” x 9 ¼” inches. Pull the string on the bottom and it plays
"Hatikvah" (The Hope) - Israel's National Anthem.
This glass faced box is made of wood and features a lithograph by the famous
Jewish Artist Arthur Szyk. Szyk was a 20th century world renowned graphic artist and book
illustrator. His works were exhibited and published in Poland, France, the
United Kingdom, Israel and the United States. However, he gained real
popularity through his war caricatures, in which, after the outbreak of World
War 2, he depicted the leaders of the Axis powers. After the war, he also devoted himself to
political issues, supporting the creation of the new state of Israel.
The lithograph is titled "Israel: A Visual Tour”, and depicts the
following historical elements: Moses, Aaron, the warrior Hur, the Ten
Commandments, King David, King Solomon, the warrior Bar-Kochba, who led the
revolt against Rome, ca. 135 C.E., the prophet Ezekiel, who, in Babylonian exile, foretold the return to
the Holy Land, The Star of David, an Israeli soldier, an Israeli pioneer and
builder, "Chalutz" The Hebrew prayer, "Shehecheyanu", the
prayer for newness and celebration. Also referenced here by Arthur Szyk, is the
blessing of the creation of the new State of Israel in 1948.
"Praised be You, God, our God, King
of the Universe, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to
commemorate this time", Israel, The Time of Our Freedom",
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me".
This antique music box is in excellent condition

smooth and perfectly. The sound is as beautiful as when it was brand new.
