Miniature Torah Scroll – Poland, 19th Century / Velvet Mantle with Gold Embroidery and Rhinestones – Europe, 20th Century
Miniature Torah scroll. [Poland, first half of 19th century]. Placed in a gilt-embroidered velvet mantle. [Europe, ca. early 20th century].
Velvet; goldwork on cardboard cutouts; metallic bobbin lace; rhinestones.
Torah scroll with miniscule script, in the "Vavei HaAmudim" format, based on the contemporary Tikkun Soferim. The scroll is wound on rollers, and cloaked in a greet velvet mantle, bearing the gilt-embroidered letters Vav and Yud, a Star of David and foliate designs, as well as rhinestones. Edged with metallic bobbin lace. Openings for the rollers were cut into the top of the mantle, unskillfully edged and causing damage to lace. Drawstring at the bottom of the mantle; the mantle appears to have been made as a tefillin pouch, which was later converted to serve as Torah mantle.
Height of parchment: 13 cm. Height of rollers: approx. 30 cm. Mantle: 19X15.5 cm. Good-fair condition. Unskilled hand stitches and late machine stitches to velvet mantle. Rubbed areas to velvet. Damage and some loss to embroidery. Break (repaired with glue) at base of one roller.
