Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver Torah pointer/yad has a knopped cylindrical tapering form.


The bulbous knops are each embellished with impressive embossed and chased scrolling lead decoration, accented with a scalloped border to the lower portion.


The plain tapering shaft/handpieces are encompassed with pinstruck style collars.


The plain knop to the lower portion terminates with an impressive hallmarked hand, with its index finger pointed.


It is uncommon to find such a piece in exceptional condition; due to their formation they do not stand the test of time.


NOTE: The Hebrew word yad יד translates to "hand" and is used while reading the Torah. The yad ensures that an impure hand does not touch the fragile parchment; issues also arise when ink does not absorb to the velum and there can be damage to the wording.
