The author dwells on the peculiarities of Jewish religious cult objects produced in Iran, through their Islamic and other vernacular features. Iranian influence is particularly stressed in the case of a Jewish marriage contract (ktuba) of 1889 from Isfahan, with representation of the ‘Sun and Lion’ (shir u khurshid), to be met also on cameos produced for Iranian Jews.
