Bridegroom: Yosef ben [Ya']akov.
Marriage contract, manuscript, ink on paper, dated 2 Tamuz 5675 at Gulpadgan (1915). The document is written in semi-block letters. The calligraphy above the text of the ketubah is the phrase ""If I forget thee, O Jerusalem"" (Pslam 137:5) and an ode to the bride and groom. Verses from Isaiah 61:9-10 form a frame around the ketubah. At the bottom of the ketubah are two addenda written in semi-cursive, probably in Judeo-Persian, as well as the various signatures of the witnesses, one of them written in Persian. The ketubah is in poor condition, with some damage to the text.
