An exceptional Russian judean silver torah pointer, dating to the later 19th. century.

A Torah pointer is used when reading the Torah scroll so as not to touch the sacred text with the finger.

Stamped with Russian silver stamps .84 and very ornately made: On the top a Lion on an openwork ornamented disc shape with two more discs below; on the upper stem three Rabbies or Jewish worshippers standing on top of another silver disc, Jewish candle surmounted by a Judean star and ending with the pointed finger with a ring with inserted Ruby-like stone.

Size: 27,5 cm. relatively massive, weighing ca. 72 grams.

Ex. Danish Private Collection, aquired ca. 1970s-1990s.
