This hand-written one of a kind Torah fragment is approximately 350 years old and has been beautifully preserved. These are the only red scroll fragments I have ever seen from Persia -- Extremely rare. Torah Fragments like these are seldom seen or available due to their age. Scrolls from Persia, are highly prized for the beauty of its soft colored parchment and their beautiful calligraphy. These parchments are so prized because they hold their ink well and the letters remain black and easy to read over centuries of use.
