Psalm 44 Antique 17th Century Hand Calligraphy Manuscript on Vellum Framed & Tab Mounted
Psalm 44, Antique 17th century hand calligraphy on vellum, tab mounted and framed. "The Psalm of Communal Lament".
We are very please to be able to offer for your consideration this professionally tab mounted and framed 17th Century vellum of Psalm 44
The calligraphy on this vellum is hand penned , our expert tells us it was most likely taken from a privately owned, and or, commissioned book of Psalms. We believe this because it is without illumination, and markings for musical notations. It is beautifully mounted on a fabric back board with corner tab mounts. The vellum is scribed in Latin, on both sides, or recto inverso. Shadows of the letters on the reverse side can be faintly seen through the text of the front. From the look of the font style, the peculiar punctuation, and the vellum used, our expert dates it to the 17th century. The passage is a portion of Psalm 44, or the Psalm of Communal Lament. According to our Latin translator it is verses 9 through 13. In these verses, the Psalmist laments that God has been slow to act, and has a responsibility to save these people from their enemies.
The frame measures 23 1/8 inches wide, by 30 1/2 inches tall, by 1 5/8 inches deep. The frame is nice and deep, providing adequate space to accommodate the ripples in the vellum. The frame is finished in a dark brown stain, and is distressed. The back is covered in heavy brown paper with sealed edges. This piece weighs approximately 8 pounds.
Condition- This framed antique framed vellum is in wonderful condition. There are no visible flaws that we can see.
If you are a collector of religious antiquities this would be a wonderful piece to add to your collection.
