SOLD - Sterling Silver Tefillin - Antique George V

Description


These fine antique George V sterling silver tefillin* have a plain rectangular rounded form.


The hallmarked hinged cover of the tefillin has a protruding compartment to accommodate the scripture parchment.


Either side of the hinge of each tefillah features a space through which a ribbon or rope may be threaded.


The upper portion of each cover is embellished with the contemporary engraved Hebrew initials שי ('shel yad' - arm-tefillin) and שר ('shel rosh' - head-tefillin)**.


* Tefillin, otherwise known as phylacteries, are more commonly crafted in black leather due to their daily use during morning prayer by traditional/observant Jews. Pairs of tefillin are worn to indicate the remembrance and sign of God's intervention during the Exodus from Egypt.


** One is placed above the forehead and the other is worn to the upper arm, whilst the straps/ribbons are wrapped down the arm and entwined around the hand/fingers.


Date: 1910

Condition


These antique tefillin are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique silverware.
