Hand-shaped Torah Staves - Atzei Chaim - Morocco
Torah Staves. Morocco [probably from the area of Fes, early 20th century]. Carved and painted wood; engraved silver. The top part of the staves is made of carved wood shaped as a hand holding a wooden shaft. The wrist is surrounded by a frill cuff, above a wide gadrooned band with spiral silver threads. Above the band and below it are narrow silver bands, engraved with vegetal patterns. An inscription is engraved on the top bands (identical in both staves): "Simcha Bat Yosef Attar". The bottom part of the staves is carved in a stepped design. Height: 112.5 cm. Fair-good condition. Fractures and defects to wood. Faded color. The top part is detached from the poles.
