Brass decorative piece with Jewish motif
Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ, USA
Pressed or hammered brass decorative piece for which the function is unknown. The Jewish motif with two lions flanking a Torah in the center strongly suggests that this is not only a decorative piece, but that it relates to some aspect of religious practice. The object itself may either be complete, or a piece of a larger object.
