Vintage Mezuzah on Vellum with Handwritten Inscription

Regular price $50.00

Here we have a vintage mezuzah with text inscribed on vellum from an old estate in southern Minnesota. The vellum definitely has a sacred feel as it is very taut and recoils into the natural rolled position. Then you have the old mysterious writing in ink on the outer container. Here's what I can muster:

Mezuzahs
22 Lines?
[Illegible] 6-4-9
" 11-10-21
after passing
[illegible]
'Shaddai'

Fascinating item with a great, important, yet mysterious history.

Here's a great intro to the history of mezuzahs, courtesy of myjewishlearning.com.

I have no idea about the age. I listed 1950s because it's in the middle. Very well may be earlier. I'm really not sure.

The mezuzah case measures just over 6". The vellum measures just under 5" wide and 6" tall. The vellum has several stains. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.

I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes please). Free shipping on the mezuzah.

I learned a lot after finding the vintage mezuzahs from this estate. Great items and history.
