Marriage contract, manuscript, ink on vellum, dated the fifth of Adar II 5521 (1761 March 11) at Pisa. Two sections of text containing the marriage contract and conditions (tena'im), surrounded by borders with calligraphed verses. The text of the outer border is from the end of the book of Ruth, consisting of the blessing that the elders give Boaz when he marries Ruth. On the upper left hand corner there is a round stamp with a coat of arms consisting of what appears to be two eagles with a crown above their heads. The signatures of the groom and witnesses appear in Italian at the bottom of the document.
