The ten commandments are a recognizable feature incorporated into the architecture of many Synagogues. One generally finds them prominently displayed above a door or atop the peak of the facade at the entrance. These two wooden panels are early 20th-century handmade examples and are of US origin, most likely from the East coast. The bright blue background and gold lettering are traditional and make each character stand out clearly. These panels are appropriately time/age weathered and are beautiful examples of religious architectural pieces.
Measurements reflect the size of individual panels. Each panel weighs 17 pounds.
