20 Description

The scroll opens with a benediction sheet framed by the same ornamentation as the megillah itself. The text panels along all the membranes are framed by stenciled repeating decorations. They are composed of "white" (in reality it is the color of the parchment) pairs of stylized birds and floral motifs (only some elements of them are painted in blue, red or gold), and gold palmettes. The background of the sections is alternately painted in red or blue. The scroll ends with a decorative cartouche with the coat of arms with a double-headed eagle. Another family emblem in a decorative cartouche is partly preserved on the right edge of the first membrane; probably it is a rampant lion turned to the left, with a palm (?) branch or a lulav in its forelegs.

The scroll is mounted on a wooden handle.

36 Decoration Program
36 Summary and Remarks

Online collection of the ritual objects from the E. Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute is available on http://cbj.jhi.pl/collections/964689

The ornamentation of the scroll shows a close relationship with several other decorated scrolls and ketubbot; see e.g. the scroll 36, Klau Library, Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. On the basis of the latter, the undated manuscripts can be dated to the 2nd half of the 18th century and connected with a workshop active in Ancona.  

38 Suggested Reconstruction
39 History/Provenance
Col. 2: Owner's inscription within a cartouche: "Jacob Ha-Cohen, Gardish (?)". The name Jacob is written on the erased name, Isaac, which is still discernible underneath. אדר
Opening edge: the former shelfmark, 6012, is written on the back side. There is no new shelfmark.
The scroll was probably transferred to the Jewish Historical Institute Museum in 1948 from the Central Storage of the Ministry of Culture and Art in Marozyn in the Klodzko region, Wroclaw county.Col. 22: the word "Adar" was later added to the top left corner
by another hand in light brown ink.
40 Main Surveys & Excavations
41 Condition
The opening edge of the scroll is damaged. Parts of the text and decoration have flaked off. The first sheet (at the center of col. 3) is torn and was partly sewn up. A part of the second sheet is missing.
