Monselice, Italy, 1659 – Gold Leaf
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage contract, from Monselice (Italy), 1659, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. On Italian marriage contracts, each family’s coat of arms was often included; here they are depicted in shields above and below the text. The groom’s coat of arms was a pair of blessing hands surmounted by the crown of priesthood. A rooster perched on a branch, with a crescent half-moon and three stars above, was the bride’s family emblem. In cartouches at sides: “Let thy fountain be blessed and have joy of the wife of thy youth” (Prov. 5:18) Above ketubbah text: “[Good] sign and fortune”
