Torah Scroll Bible, 1800-1820
A rare find, from this location and age, the scroll has a beautiful reddish brown colour like some scrolls that come from Yemen. This colour is due to the process used in making the scroll, this process ages to a deeper colour over the centuries. The present fragment offered is the early witness to the various Hebrew Iraqi customs concerning its letters, and as a whole, the writing of a Torah. Torah fragments like these are extremely rare and seldom seen in synagogues or available due to their age. The Torah scroll is, considering its age, well preserved and in good condition and will stay beautiful with care for centuries to come.
This portion is one of a kind with style that was used in Yemen about 120 years ago, there are typical Hebrew letters and style. Considering its history and age, the scroll is well preserved and authentic, and will remain well with treatment for centuries to come.
