Esther Scroll on parchment, rolled on a wooden handle. Morocco, 19th century.
Text is written within 22 colorful horseshoe arches (the first ones painted yellow and red; all the others painted red, blue and yellow). Between each two arches appear vertical braided decorations. At the end of the scroll is a naïve illustration of Haman and his ten sons hanging [it is not known to us with certainty whether the illustration was created during the writing of the scroll or whether it was added later].
At the beginning of the scroll appears a later addition - an illustration resembling a family emblem that features hands spread for the Priestly Benediction; apparently this was added in Italy in the late 19th century.
Height of parchment: 19 cm, length of handle: 35 cm. Good condition. Stains and damages, mainly at the end of the scroll. Handwritten comments (in pencil) on last sheet. Inscription in pen at the beginning of the scroll (on reverse of parchment).
