Kethubah [Marriage Contract]

Manuscript Black ink on vellum. 4 x 5 inches

Stockholm: 1852

Est: $1,500 - $2,000
In this Swedish marriage contract, the groom “Uri son of Moses” pledges to support the bride “Yitta daughter of Jacob.” The witnesses are “Lipmann son of Lipmann Wolf” and “Lipa son of Menachem.” The dimensions of this Kethubah are peculiarly petite, reminiscent of those of the mezuzah to be inserted on the doorpost
