The words Shnei HaSe'erim (Parshat Acharei Mot) are at the top of a column according to Sephardic custom. The manner of writing, type of vellum, the stiches and layout are characteristic to Western Poland or Germany of the 18th-19th centuries. Rolled on two Atzei Chaim, made of dark high-quality wood, with two large silver finials (shaped as pomegranates) and with four silver bands decorated with leaves and flowers. Height of vellum: 18.5 cm. Height of Atzei Chaim: 54 cm. Good-fair condition. Stains, corrections, reinforcements and replacements of several membranes.
