One of the fragments of fittings hewn from thin iron sheet in the shape of arabesques, lightly hammered out underneath. The surface of the sheet was originally tin-plated. Judging by the partially arched shape of the largest fragment and the small remnants of fabric with canvas binding that are visible underneath in the corrosion layers, it is likely that they are chest fittings.
The map shows the location of all the sites where the genizah items in the collections of the Jewish Museum in Prague were discovered (finds from other sites, such as Ivančice and Pacov, are not in the museum’s collections). Representative genizah items from each location are gradually being added to the museum’s website. Complete sets of genizah items can be found in the museum’s catalogue at collections.jewishmuseum.cz.
