  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Wood panels with Hebrew inscriptions, late 19th-early 20th century
    Wood panels with Hebrew inscriptions Culture Date Iran late 19th early 20th century Medium Wood painted and lacquered Dimensions 27 1 16 7 13 16 in 68 7 19 8 cm Owner The Jewish Museum New York Acquistion Gift of Dr Harry G Friedman F 4012a b On View Keywords Architectural Elements Islamic Art Synagogue Furnishings Collection Area Ceremonial Art Submit Picture Request As was true of many Jewish communities in Asia Persian Jews enclosed their Torah scrolls in rigid cylindrical cases known as tikim The use of a case such as this meant that the Torah was stored vertically and read in the same position Ornaments for the top of the case could include silver finials for the staves and silver crowns and the inside was either painted or lined with textiles Persian tikim not counting their staves or ornaments range in height from 24 to 57 inches 61 to 145 cm They could have been kept in an ark or in architectural niches as is known from Isfahan The relatively large size of Persian tikim precludes these doors from having been used for a Torah ark Many synagogues had additional book cabinets which held the five scrolls read at various times during the year Ruth Esther Ecclesiastes the Song of Songs and Lamentations or prayer books for the cantor Further none of the framing inscriptions refer to the Torah explicitly although some quotations are taken from Genesis For all these reasons it is unlikely that the doors were made for a Torah ark The type of decoration on the doors is typical of motifs used in Persian art for mirror frames caskets and other decorative objects The same birds and flowers cuplike roses trefoil leaves and a sprouting of long stemmed leaves appear on works dating between 1714 and 1847 The rigid symmetry of the compositions suggests a somewhat narrower dating from the early eighteenth to the early nineteenth century Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 128 129 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle speed true data cycle manual trump false data cycle swipe true data cycle prev cycle prev data cycle next cycle next Rikah Polacco Torah Binder Learn More Anni Albers American b Germany 1899 1994 Six Prayers Learn More Marriage Contract Learn More Richard Avedon American 1923 2004 Jacob Israel Avedon Learn More Matar Ishmael ha Ramhi active mid 16th early 17th century Torah Case Samaritan Torah Case Tik Learn More Heinrich Wilhelm Kompff active 1783 1825 Torah Finials Learn More Otto Natzler American b Austria 1908 2007 Hanukkah Lamp Learn More Man Ray born Emmanuel Radnitzky American 1890 1976 Untitled Self Portrait with
