SOLD - Sterling Silver Torah Finials/Rimonim - Antique George V

Description


These fine antique George V sterling silver Torah finials/rimonim have a bulbous shaped form with a plain tapering cylindrical stave receiver/terminal.


The two bulbous portions of each finial are encircled with impressive embossed and chased decorated scrolling leaf designs in addition to the original suspended hallmarked bells.


The bulbous portions are joined with a waisted cylindrical section embellished with a shaped chased leaf decorated border.


The upper portion of each body is surmounted with rope twist ornamented knops and a trifurcating chased leaf decorated compartment which accommodates a bell suspended down the centre of the hollow finial.


Each Torah rimonim terminates with a plain ball ornamentation in addition to a large Star of David/Shield of David design.


NOTE: Torah finials (in Hebrew: rimonim) are often used instead of a Torah crown. These Torah accessories are placed on top of the staves/rollers and often encircled with decorative bells to reflect the bells which can be attached to the robes of the high priest and also the chiming symbolises the joy of the Torah.


Date: 1935

Condition


These antique Torah finials are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The embossed and chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each stave receiver are very clear.

The part hallmarks to each bell and to one of the Star of David terminals show signs of wear, as to be expected in keeping with age.

The Star of David to the other rimonim is unmarked.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
