Fol. 1v: The initial word אשרי is written in burnished gold against a blue background decorated with thin delicate scrolls in white and gold. The entire page is framed by a band filled with 's' shaped scrolls with little golden leaves, combined with stylized flowers. Among them, on the right, are two rabbits. In the lower centre, flanked by leaves, is a coat of arm with a lion standing in front of a tree with red fruits which is flanked by a golden star on the right and a crescent silver moon on the left.
