Description Information
   Diameter 25cm. Tin box with many stains and scratches. Designed in several colors.
   This Barton's New Year candy box was designed by the famous Jewish Russian artist Ilya Schor and is quite rare today. Though not in very good condition, it nonetheless conveys the naive charm of Ilya Schor's work. Depicted are scenes associated with Rosh Hashana: Synagogue service, Tashlich, Simchat Torah, and even Sukkot, with the verse "L'Shana Tova Tikateivu."
