Antique Victorian Fob Mendele Sforim Grandfather of Yiddish Literature Judaica
This is an antique mid to late 1800s Victorian Era Judaica pendant, medal, fob of Mendele Mocher (Moykher) Sforim also known as Shalom Jacob Abromovich, the “Grandfather of Yiddish Literature.” He coined many words in Hebrew and his works are well-known today. He passed away in 1917. This pendant medal or fob is from an estate and looks like solid bronze. It is made of 1 piece and is still in excellent condition. It has quite a bit of dark patina from age and has not been polished out. Looks like bronze. A lovely literary estate item for your antique Judaica collection.
