Was brought back from Jerusalem before the war and its never been restored or messed about with, the inside cover has an inscription for 1921 when it was given, this could be its age or when it was given down a family but its certainly that age at least, as an object which could tell quite a story I like it just as a desk object now and one that carries a blessing. The pages are a little discoloured now with some foxing but its basically a good example of these interesting little books which turn up now and again in old estates we find. We list these Olive wood items because most of them end up either back in the Holly land or Strangely in New York and either way they always seem to find good homes.
I have had several items in the past of this rare wood and often its inscribed with Hebrew writing just like this. Not mint condition but good original estate find condition and has a wonderful rich patina which is deep in colour and looks much better when being handled than in the images. Size: approx 8.5 cm tall and 13 cm across. It has come from a very good old estate sale with other Curios and Antiques.
Please look at the images closely as they represent an important part of the description, thanks.
