LOT: 005

Especially rare: huge rimonim (finials) for a sefer torah. Silver. Uncommon style. Alsace, France. Beginning of the 20th century

Handsome pair of rimonim for a sefer torah, uncommonly large. Original work. Interesting silver work: Many leaves are decorated with hammer/engraving/cutting work, soldered on three hoops one above the other on three levels. Bells are hung on each floor, and chains on the first floor. The finish on the roof is in the shape of a spike reminiscent of a tower head or a raised pointed hat. Total weight: 2570g. Approx height: 46cm—note that the heights of the two are different, the difference results from the rod that holds the rimon and is made intentionally in order to adapt it to the height differences that exist in the atzei Chayim of a closed Ashkenazi Torah scroll. One is missing two chains and the other is missing 8 bells and a leaf. Good condition (see picture). From a private collection.
