Description:
Bridegroom: Sa'adyah Ma'arabi ben Mosheh (?) Ma'arabi.
Bride: 'Azizah bat 'Amram Tsevoni.
Abstract:
Marriage contract, manuscript, ink and paint on vellum, dated 14th of Tishre 5501 at Damesek (1740). The text is enclosed in a colored floral design. Above the text is a blessing for the bride and groom. The top of the ketubah is of a scalloped triangle. Both the text and the paint are badly faded. The bottom of the ketubah appears to be cut off and is thus missing the names of the witnesses. The text of the ketubah itself, however, is complete.
