Marriage contract, manuscript, ink and paint on vellum, dated 3 Tevet 5538 at Virtsilli (1778). The document is scalloped at the top and within the upper border are two joined ovals with pictures of a laver pouring water over hands and hands forming the gesture of the priestly blessing to symbolize that the marriage is joining a groom from the Levi family and a bride from the Kohen family. The text is surrounded by a floral border in various shades of blue and brown. The text is written in Italian block letters, however the ink is quite faded.
