Jerusalem artist - olive wood industry Jerusalem - judaica - an important & rare Torah pointer ( yad) (1) - Wood- Olive

A magnificent& antique Torah pointer ( yad)

Very very rare and hard to find ( not very much of them left )

Hand crafted by an artist in Jerusalem , circa 1880

Large & massive - original patina - made from quality olive wood - made from 2 parts -

Torah pointers from wood are very rare , they brake more easily , more gentle , also very little were made

P.s I have searched back in all of Sotheby’s & Christie’s judaica sale and couldn’t find even one from olive wood
