A "Scroll of Esther" (Heb. מגילת אסתר, megilat ester) is a manuscript copy of the biblical Book of Esther, which recounts the story of the salvation of the Jews in the Persian Empire, read in synagogues on the Evening and Morning Services of the holiday of Purim.

Decorated manuscripts and embellished scroll cases have been created for use in many communities throughout the Jewish Diaspora since the early modern period, varying in materials and styles. Made for individual users, but read publicly during synagogue services, these objects lay at the intersection between the spheres of personal ritual and synagogue life. The materials, shapes, and the overarching aesthetics presiding the making of embellished megilot are indicative of the social and cultural characteristics of their makers, of the patrons who commissioned them, and the communities they belonged to.

This scroll is a facsimile, limited edition of 950 copies, copy no 490/950 printed on high quality parchment like paper and decorated with sterling silver ends and lock.
