Tin Purim Gregor (rattle)
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
10 cm. , some scratches.
Tin rattle for children to make a loud noise whenever the name of Haman is read, in order to blot out the "memory of Amalek" (see Deut. 25:19; and Esth. 3:1 and I Sam. 15:8–9 for Haman was a descendant of Amalek). The custom is ancient and persists to date, though frowned upon as indecorous by some authorities.
