Ketubah.com and The Jewish Museum have collaborated to bring together a beautiful selection of Ketubahs culled from the museum's collection of Marriage Contracts. The Museum Collection features ketubah designs adapted from original works from around the world that date as far back as the 1600s. Their timeless artwork decorates modern texts and provides a reminder of the long history and tradition behind signing the ketubah.
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage certificate from Senna, Kurdistan, Persia, 1848, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The decoration of this ketubah combines the motif of the lion in front of the rising sun, a national symbol of Persia typically used in ketubot from Isfahan, with a frame comprising a series of quatrefoils alternating with pitchers, popular in ketubot from Senna, where this example was produced. The appearance of these two decorative devices on the same ketubah could indicate that the document commemorates the wedding of a local Senna Jew to a member of a family with ties to Isfahan. Heirloom-quality giclee print using archival inks and paper. Available in 4 sizes and 18 text option, including custom text ($200 is for size 16"x18"). Member's discount is only available when the ketubah is purchased through The Jewish Museum Shops.
