Bronze figurine in the shape of a seated Jewish fortune teller

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.44

Bronze figure of a seated Jewish fortune teller with cards. It is possible that this figure was used to hold calling cards, or even as an ashtray, although it seems exceptionally detailed for utilitarian use. This statue is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
