Description
Miniature Sefer Torah, in Ashkenazi scribal writing. [Poland, first half of 19th century].
Ink on light-colored, thin parchment. Especially charming writing, 42 lines per column. Tagim ornamentation [artistic duplicates of the tagim adorn the letters of the top lines].
Enclosed is a report by an expert on ancient Torah scrolls, who determined the place and date of the writing. He also notes that the scroll was written with "vavei ha'amudim" [the letter "vav" opens each column], but this was not laid out according to the accepted custom of writing (tikun sofrim), consequently some letters were stretched out or written close together to justify the lines.
Height of parchment: 16 cm. Maximum height including atzei chaim: 29 cm. Good condition. Stains. Small tears to margins of several membranes. Scrolled on a pair of new wooden atzei chaim, unusually small, with ornamentation. New red velvet mantle, embroidered with a Torah crown.
