Conclusion

Who owned this Jewish ritual object before it was acquired by Zuiderzeemuseum is no longer known.

Explanation

During the Second World War, the theft of Jewish ritual objects was widespread. Because so little is known about the object’s origins, its provenance may very well be problematic.
