Silver-Mounted Torah Case from the Moussaieff Family

Decade: 1920s

Torah case covered in knotted carpet with silver borders of chased foliage and inscriptions, leaf-tip gallery, the top hung with bells, fitted with scroll, the top covered in damask.

The inside with dedication inscription from Shlomo Moussaieff (grandfather to the late owner) and his wife Esta, in Jerusalem, presumably to the Bokharan synagogue he built in that city.
