Torah Scroll Bible

About 450 yrs old Yemen - Exodus 26 about the Tabernacle

You are bidding on a section of an ancient Manuscript handwritten Torah Scroll in the Original Hebrew Language on Deer Parchment. This handwritten document is over 450 years old and made from deer skin. This scroll came from Yemen, 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 reddish deep colour like scrolls that come from early Yemen origins. This deep colour is due to the process used in making the scroll, this process ages to a deeper red brown colour over the centuries. Torah scrolls like these are extremely rare and seldom seen in synagogues or available due to their age. The Torah Scroll considering its age is well preserved and in good condition and will stay beautiful with care for centuries to come.

A large piece.

This is a section of an ancient Manuscript. This Torah Scroll is written in the authentic Hebrew language on deer skin parchment, this portion is one of a kind with style that was used in Yemen 400+ yrs ago, there are strange Hebrew letters and style.
Note that the various letters such as

'א' ג' ז' ח' נ' ן' פ' צ

See the pictures

Even though it's history and considering its age it is well preserved and authentic historical situation and remains well with treatment for centuries to come.

* heavy and thick vellum - WILD DEER VELLUM REDDISH DARK COLOUR
