20 Description

The ten faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet. a pair of annulets encircle the top of the body, while a single annulet encircle the top. The case opens into two halves in the middle of the front facet, while the back facet is separated from the rest of the facetsand connected to them by a pair of hinges. The original facets are painted with oil (?) paints, in the colors deep green, red-orange, brown, white and burgundy. They are painted with a floral pattern, with a lobe at the top and bottom of each facet. The top lobes contain a sun motif, the bottom ones a plant. The front facet and the one on its right are painted with tempera(?), in the colors red, green, yellow, light blue, and black. They bear a highly stylized floral pattern within a pointed-arch-shaped cartouche at their center. The central cartouche is separated by a foliate band from a geometric rosette above and below it. The top of each of these two facets bears a flower within a lozenge-shaped frame. The pattern between the top annulets and below the bottom one is difficult to identify, but it has a deep green-turquoise background. The inner face is faceted, and painted orange. The hollow bottom has a shelf with a hole in it for the rods. Two insert holes for the staves are at the top of the case. The body is surmounted by a carved wooden coronet bearing an openwork palmette on each facet, except for the front two, which bear a geometric motif.

36 Summary and Remarks
It seems as if the wire "sewing" is a later repair. The orange paint on the inside of the case also seems to be a later addition -- the paint covers the wires. Parts of the annulets were also repaired through "sewing" with wires. On the inside of the case, one can see where a hinge or clasp once was attached to the center back of the case -- there are signs of a circular base on either side of the central slit. Thus what is now the back may once have been the front. According to the museum's card catalogue, the object is from nineteenth-century Libya-Tunisia or Morocco.

36 Summary and Remarks
It seems as if the wire "sewing" is a later repair. The orange paint on the inside of the case also seems to be a later addition -- the paint covers the wires. Parts of the annulets were also repaired through "sewing" with wires. On the inside of the case, one can see where a hinge or clasp once was attached to the center back of the case -- there are signs of a circular base on either side of the central slit. Thus what is now the back may once have been the front. According to the museum's card catalogue, the object is from nineteenth-century Libya-Tunisia or Morocco.

41 Condition
The case is in poor condition. Sections of the annulets are missing, and two of the facets (the center-front one and the one on its right) are from a different case altogether.

20 Description The ten faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet. a pair of annulets encircle the top of the body, while a single annulet encircle the top. The case opens into two halves in the middle of the front facet, while the back facet is separated from the rest of the facetsand connected to them by a pair of hinges. The original facets are painted with oil (?) paints, in the colors deep green, red-orange, brown, white and burgundy. They are painted with a floral pattern, with a lobe at the top and bottom of each facet. The top lobes contain a sun motif, the bottom ones a plant. The front facet and the one on its right are painted with tempera(?), in the colors red, green, yellow, light blue, and black. They bear a highly stylized floral pattern within a pointed-arch-shaped cartouche at their center. The central cartouche is separated by a foliate band from a geometric rosette above and below it. The top of each of these two facets bears a flower within a lozenge-shaped frame. The pattern between the top annulets and below the bottom one is difficult to identify, but it has a deep green-turquoise background. The inner face is faceted, and painted orange. The hollow bottom has a shelf with a hole in it for the rods. Two insert holes for the staves are at the top of the case. The body is surmounted by a carved wooden coronet bearing an openwork palmette on each facet, except for the front two, which bear a geometric motif.

20 Description

The ten faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet. a pair of annulets encircle the top of the body, while a single annulet encircle the top. The case opens into two halves in the middle of the front facet, while the back facet is separated from the rest of the facetsand connected to them by a pair of hinges. The original facets are painted with oil (?) paints, in the colors deep green, red-orange, brown, white and burgundy. They are painted with a floral pattern, with a lobe at the top and bottom of each facet. The top lobes contain a sun motif, the bottom ones a plant. The front facet and the one on its right are painted with tempera(?), in the colors red, green, yellow, light blue, and black. They bear a highly stylized floral pattern within a pointed-arch-shaped cartouche at their center. The central cartouche is separated by a foliate band from a geometric rosette above and below it. The top of each of these two facets bears a flower within a lozenge-shaped frame. The pattern between the top annulets and below the bottom one is difficult to identify, but it has a deep green-turquoise background. The inner face is faceted, and painted orange. The hollow bottom has a shelf with a hole in it for the rods. Two insert holes for the staves are at the top of the case. The body is surmounted by a carved wooden coronet bearing an openwork palmette on each facet, except for the front two, which bear a geometric motif.

20 Description

The ten faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet. a pair of annulets encircle the top of the body, while a single annulet encircle the top. The case opens into two halves in the middle of the front facet, while the back facet is separated from the rest of the facetsand connected to them by a pair of hinges. The original facets are painted with oil (?) paints, in the colors deep green, red-orange, brown, white and burgundy. They are painted with a floral pattern, with a lobe at the top and bottom of each facet. The top lobes contain a sun motif, the bottom ones a plant. The front facet and the one on its right are painted with tempera(?), in the colors red, green, yellow, light blue, and black. They bear a highly stylized floral pattern within a pointed-arch-shaped cartouche at their center. The central cartouche is separated by a foliate band from a geometric rosette above and below it. The top of each of these two facets bears a flower within a lozenge-shaped frame. The pattern between the top annulets and below the bottom one is difficult to identify, but it has a deep green-turquoise background. The inner face is faceted, and painted orange. The hollow bottom has a shelf with a hole in it for the rods. Two insert holes for the staves are at the top of the case. The body is surmounted by a carved wooden coronet bearing an openwork palmette on each facet, except for the front two, which bear a geometric motif.
