20 Description

The undulating Torah finial consists of a shaft, a body, a head and an apex. The tapering cylindrical shaft is smooth and is encircled at the bottom by a ring.

The undulating body is composed of a bowl shaped base decorated with vertical leaves that radiate from the center. The base is surmounted by a compressed convex unit which bears six medallions on each finial. The medallions depict: Noah's Ark as a boat-house, a goat, a deer, an elephant, a lion, and a fish. All the animals face the left. A concave unit surmounts the bottom, is composed of an openwork weave that creates cartouches decorated with flowers and leaves in the center. A stepped dome surmounts the unit. It is encircled by strips, the top of which is decorated with leaves. Hooks for bells are attached to the top and bottom parts of the body.

A crown shaped head is mounted over the body. It is composed of six arms in the shape of acanthus leaves. A floral circlet tops the head and bears a bird shaped apex.

Five hallmarks are stamped on the object, part of them stamped twice.
1. The hallmark depicts a cross with dots on both sides within a rectangular cut angle frame.
It is a city mark from the 1890'2 of an unidentified city, probably Odessa.
Cf. Postnikova-Losseva, p.258, no. 3858.
2. The hallmark depicts a cross surrounded by three crowns. It is combined with the cypher 84 in an oval frame.
This is a hallmark of the region of Herson in the Ukraine in the end of the 19th century.
Cf. Postnikova-Losseva, p. 255, no. 3781.
The cypher 84 is a Russian quality mark in the 18-19th c. Cf Postnikova-Losseva, p.148, no.12.
3. The hallmark depicts the Cyrillic initials: "I.SH"(in lat.) surmounting the date 1891, in a square frame. It is the assay halmark of Shmidetzki Josef Alexandrovich active in 1891 in unidentified city.
Cf. Postnikova-Losseva, p.258, no.3859
4. The hallmark depicts the Cyrillic initials: "M.B" (in lat.). This is a hallmark of an unknown artist.
Cf. Postnikova-Losseva, p.258, no. 3862.
