The frame on the top part depicts two people in the center. One is a Jew with a kippah and the other is a gentile wearing a uniform. There is an inscription inbetween them in square filled letters which reads:

("For I.O. Linetsky the writer for the day of the 25th anniversary of his literary activities from patrons in Odessa (on the) 17th of November in the year of 1890".)
