Personal Objects

This section includes book bindings, boxes, jewelry, a medallion, seals, signet rings and amulets, a bowl, and a mortar. Some of them are gifts marking special occasions. Book bindings, such as the one inscribed with the initials of a bridal couple and their family emblems, were widely used in 18th-century Italy to encase daily, Sabbath and festival prayer books.
