With illustrations of angels, a palm, Star of David, grids containing letters and more. • "Ilan Sefirot" amulet on parchment, "a segulah for everything - pleasing, success, evil eye, difficult labor, pregnancy and plague […] - this amulet has to be placed in a silver case". Meticulously drawn, minute handwriting. • Parchment amulet, for success and against evil eye. "Order your angels […] to come to the house of Abba Shalom son of Rivka and to go with him, to bring success in his trade and in everything that he is doing". • And more. Six amulets (two are written on paper). Size and condition vary. Overall good to fair-poor condition. Worming damage to paper amulets. Two amulets are placed in a leather case.
