Large 19th-century Dutch Bible in leather cover with large, handmade double silver locks.
The Bible contains the entire Holy Scripture (old and new testaments).
Published by the Nederlandsche Bijbel Compagnie.
The Bible dates back to 1870 and the silver locks were made in 1859.
The large silver locks work perfectly and are particularly beautifully shaped.
The locks are decorated by hand, with fabulous, detailed decorations (such as floral motifs).
Both locks are identical, the silver fully approved in the Netherlands, and marked in several places with Dutch silver hallmarks:
Silver content, walking lion = 2nd content 0.835 Dutch silver.
Quality hallmark Minerva head with the letter M = Schoonhoven.
Year letter Z = 1859
Master’s mark E50 = Gerrit van Ewijck Schoonhoven
This is a large, impressive Bible with a height of 15.5 cm, a width of 10.00 cm and the thickness is 7.00 cm.
The large silver locks have a width of 4.3 cm.
Both the Bible, the leather cover and the beautiful double silver locks are in particularly beautiful and flawless condition for their age of more than 150 years.
The Bible is a striking and particularly decorative object due to its impressive dimensions, the beautiful gilt edges and the large double silver locks.
It can of course also be used as a Bible.
Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail.
