Round Enamel and Pewter Dreidel and Stand – Reds
Hand made by Iris Braunstein, this pewter dreidel features an intricate colored inlay, accented by red beads in the corners and around the edge. The typical letters found on dreidels in the diaspora are Nun, Gimmel, Hay and Shin, which stand for the Hebrew phrase “Nes Gadol Haya Sham” — “A great miracle happened there [in Israel].” Because this dreidel is made in Israel, it features a pey, which stands for the Hebrew word “po” or “here,” instead: A great miracle happened here!
As each is handmade, no two are exactly alike, but the basic theme and coloration remains the same.
