Sefer Torah written in Sefardi handwriting on gvil parchment—North Africa, 18th century
Nice handwriting by a professional sofer, uniform writing throughout, except for 2 pieces of parchment from Metzorah, different handwriting perhaps older. Written in ink on red gvil parchment (thick, soft leather of a beast, using all parts of the leather, with inscription on the outside part, which causes the brown-red color). There are erasures and corrections made over the years. Not sold as kosher. Etzei Hayim made by hand with engraving and decorations made with pewter corresponding to the period, with corrections made in the last few years. Moroccan jacket and a belt from a much later period. Height of parchment: 56cm. Height of writing: 45cm. 46 lines per column. Height including etzei hayim: 116cm. Various defects, generally good condition.
