This Jewish religious relic has a turned baluster support on a square base with a triangular top holding a spherical crystal. Painted on the front are the names of the four archangels "Michael. Gabriel. Rafael. Uriel." at the top of the triangle is a painted Star of David. It was possibly used in medieval mystical ceremonies for the interpretation of Scripture.
