Torah Scroll – “Chatam Sofer” Scribal Writing – Hungary, Early 20th Century

Torah scroll. [Hungary?, ca. first half of 20th century].
Ink on parchment. Neat Ashkenazi writing. 42 lines per column.
The letters are formed conforming with the approach adopted by the Chatam Sofer, which he learned from his teacher R. Natan Adler of Frankfurt am Main (see Chatam Sofer responsa, Yoreh De'ah, Siman 266).
Height of parchment: approx. 58 cm. Fair condition. Thick parchment. Stains. Age-damages to letters in many places. Detached membranes in Parshat No'ach and in Parshat Balak. The scroll does not have atzei chaim nor a mantle.
Enclosed is a report by an expert on ancient Torah scrolls regarding the place and date of writing. The scroll was written with "vavei ha'amudim" [each column opens with the letter vav], in line with a Tikun Sofrim printed in the first half of the 20th century.
