The following description was prepared by William Gross:
The shofar, or trumpet fashioned from the horns of certain animals, were used on the two high holy days, Rosh Hashanah and Yom haKippurim. These two holidays mark the beginning of the Jewish lunar year in the period of September/October. Decorated shofars are not common. This highly unusual example of a shofar is decorated with silver. These are known in Morocco, but are of extreme rarity. There were a few families of famous makers of shofars in Morocco. One of them, the Barsheshet family, immigrated to Israel and continued in their profession here. This example may be from thier workshop in Morocco.
