A unique momento from the bedrock of ideological Zionism.

Eretz Israeli 20th Zionist Congress delegate pin by Moshe Moro 1937
30070254
Palestine/Switzerland: 20th Zionist Congress delegate's pin, (1937); nickel(?); manufactured by Moshe Moro of Jerusalem; size: 19.5mm x 22.5mm; weight: 5g. Square shield shaped pin depicting the official emblem of the congress (a Hebrew letter "Kaf" whose numerical value is "20"), with Star of David in right corner and Hebrew legend above "The Zionist Congress". On reverse, a safety pin and Moro's mark. The 20th Zionist Congress took place in Zurich throughout most of August 1937, under the leadership of Menachem Ussishkin (the head of the Jewish National Fund): against the backdrop of the 1936-39 Arab Revolt in Palestine, it debated the position of the Zionist movement with regard to the 1936 Peel Commission's study to establish the practicality of dividing Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states - Ussishkin's faction was opposed, though the faction represented by Chaim Weizmann and David Ben-Gurion supported such a partition. In the end, the Congress rejected specific borders recommended by the Commission but permitted its executive to negotiate over them.

Israeli 23rd Zionist Congress bronze hollow-backed pin, 1951
30470256
Israel: 23rd Zionist Congress pin, (1951); bronze; not maker-marked; size: 28.5mm; weight: 3.15g. Hollow-backed badge with safety pin on reverse, with stylized but generic emblem of the Congress - a Menorah - flanked by the Hebrew letters "Kaf" and "Gimmel" (for "23") and the legend in Hebrew around edge, "The Zionist Congress Jerusalem". The 23rd Zionist Congress was only the second one held after the Second World War, and also the first ever held in Israel, in August 1951. To commemorate the accomplishment of the Congress's original aim (the "Basel program" - the establishment of a Jewish state in Israel by political means), the Congress opened at the site of Herzl's grave in Jerusalem (his body was re-interred there in 1949). The Congress therefore focused on the new goals of the Zionist movement in light of Israel's establishment and also called upon the Israeli parliament (the "Knesset") to recognize the World Zionist Organization as the representative body of all Jews in matters related to the connection between diaspora Jewry and the Jewish State. Pins from this Congress and the next exist as both hollow-backed and solid versions: given the novelty of the Congresses being held then in Israel it may be that the hollow-backed types were more widely available, either as souvenirs to the public or for wear by Congress behind-the-scenes staffers and assistants.

Israeli 24th Zionist Congress nickel tallion, 1956
30570257
Israel: 24th Zionist Congress tallion, (1956); nickel(?); not maker-marked, but may be by Kretchmer; size: 28.5mm x 33mm; weight: 12.45g. Uniface tallion bearing similar design to that of the 23rd Congress - a stylized Menorah flanked by the Hebrew letters whose numerical value is "24" and the legend "The Zionist Congress Jerusalem". The 24th Zionist Congress was held in Jerusalem between April-May 1956, under the chairmanship of Nahum Goldman - the Congress had lacked a chairman since Chaim Weizmann resigned in 1946, and it took place against an atmosphere of military insecurity around Israel's borders. The Congress discussed matters of immigration to Israel and immigrant absorption, settlements and fundraising; a proposal to eliminate party divisions within the Zionist movement and instead have regional representation was rejected. Congress emblems from this period are found as hollow-back and solid backed pins (or tallions); given the relative expense of the solid-backed emblems (particularly then, during the period of austerity - the "Tzena"), it's possible that these solid-backed badges were issued to actual delegates of the Congress.

Turkish republic Mustafa Kemal Atatürk carpet with Ottoman-Turkish text 1920-23
35570295

Turkey: Mustafa Kemal [Atatürk] carpet, circa. 1920-1923; size: carpet only (not incl. fringes): 59.7cm x 95.7cm. The carpet design is based on a famous 1918 photograph of Ataturk standing in full military uniform, although the rendition on the carpet is more youthful than his appearance in the photograph; below there is a legend in Ottoman-Turkish. The design is reminiscent of a similar weave made in Jerusalem by the Alliance Israelite Universelle School, but more artistic, intricate and with Turkish devices in the design: in this instance, with a romantic-militaristic depiction of Ataturk, the rug may date to the period of the Turkish War of Independence (1919-1923), where Ataturk became a dominant national figurehead after his party's victory in December 1919, and Ataturk himself as the head of the nationalist Turkish government in Ankara (Jan. 1920). Rare and undocumented, fully intact.

Used domestically in Turkey, locally in ISTANBUL, dated 24-6-1939 (postmarks on front and back). The depiction on the postcard is unusual: the settlement with its then-contemporary rooved houses looks like a Jewish 'colony' but the name belongs to a locale in Jordan, near the desert - and not near Haifa or the Galilee.
