The twelve-faceted wooden Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.

A pair of faceted annulets encircles the upper and lower borders of the body. twelwve knobs for the Torah case wrapper are set between the upper borders, one on each facet.

The case opens into two halves in the middle of the front facet, while the back facet is separated from the rest of the facets and connected to them by two pairs of hinges which are situated between the upper and lower borders.

A dedicatory inscription, is written on two panels with horshoe arches on either side of opening. The inscription goes from the right panel to the left and in outlined square letters reads:

!זה## הספר התורה##קדוש של ס!י)סיניור(##פינחס בן סי )סיניור(##נגייף הטראבלסי##יצו )ישמרהו צורו וגואלו(!

The inner face is plain wood. Two rectangular partitions are set at the top and bottom of each half. The lower one has a rectangular hollow handholder and is decorated with seven horizontal round holes.

Two insert holes for the staves are at the top of the case.
