Ancient Torah scroll fragment, written in Hebrew on parchment. A fragment of the Devarim - Deuteronomy - 2:2 - 2:29. This section covers: 'Israel wandering in the desert'.

The piece measures approx. 16.5" x 5.75".

You are bidding on a section of an ancient hand-written Torah scroll in Hebrew on deer vellum. This fragment is approximately 150-250 years old and came from Turkey, it is prized for its beauty of its soft deer parchment and its beautiful writing. The parchment holds its ink well and the letters remain black and easy to read. The scroll has a beautiful warm brown color this deep color is due to the process used in making the scroll, this process ages to a deeper color over the centuries.

Scrolls of this age are not easily found and extremely important for its rarity of the early examples of the Turkish Jewish tradition. The present Scroll offered is a witness to the various customs concerning its letters, and as a whole, the writing of a Torah. Fragments like these are extremely rare and seldom seen in synagogues or available due to their age. Some edge wear which does not affect the importance of this fragment. The Torah Scroll considering its age is well preserved and in good condition and will stay beautiful with care for centuries to come. Photos are an integral part of the description.

The shipment is well packed and by registered mail with a tracking number.
