© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown, -

The following description was prepared by William Gross:

While there are innumerable Torah scrolls  in the world from at least Medieval times, the custom of making scrolls from the Prophets to record in scroll form the Haphtarot read on Shabbat is much later This is a beautifully-written Haphtarah scroll, apparently from Italy, with the initial words of each Haphtarah portion illuminated with colored and gold paint. Most such scrolls were not decorated.
