The silver Torah shield is rectangular and terminats by a hemicircular arch.
The Tables of the Covenant are depicted in the centre, inscribed with the begining of the ten comandments. The tablets are flanked by a unicorn on right and by a lion on left. The two beasts are depicted in their bust, back to back while the unicorn that has a collar around his neck, is regardant, the crowned lion is gardant and has a human face.
Above the tablets is a stripe bearing a dedicatory inscription. In two lines from rihgt to left in square and blacked letters it reads:
"ז"נ )זו נדבת( ר' אברהם ב"ר )בן רבי( לוי הכהן עם בנו)י( שמואל"
"This is a donation of Rabbi Avraham son of Rabbi Levi Ha-Cohen with his son Shmuel."
The stripe is surmounted by the joined hands of the priestly benediction on which a crown is mounted. The fingers and the crown are rased over the shields upper border. Below the tablets is a medallion bearing the date. In square filed letters it reads:
"שנת ##תרס"ב" "The year (5)662 (1902)"
The lower inscription which mentions the year 1902 is wreeten over an old inscription that was erased and there are just unclear remains of it. The date 1902, inscribed over an old inscription can not serve as an indication for the time that the shield was produced and a earlier date must be accounted.
The medallion is surrounded by a flower like frame and is flanked on both sides by a horn of planty from which emerge flowers and leaves . A similar design of flowers forms a background to the upper part of the Torah shield which is all framed by a wieded line.
