20 Description

The silver finial consists of a shaft, a body, a head and an apex.

The tapering cylindrical shaft is encircled at the bottom by a ring and bears an inscription written in square filled letters which circumfers the base and reads:

"דאבע בת ר' )רב( חיים " "Doba daughter of Rabbi Haim".

The undulating body is composed of two compressed balls decorated with scrolls and flowers in openwork. The bottom ball is slightly wider than the top one and each one bears three arms for bells. The two compressed balls are connected by a tapering concave unit decorated with vertical acanthus leaves within scrolls.

The crown shaped head surmounts a smooth concave unit topped by a flat circlet. The base of the crown bears a ring of diamonds from which rise six arms decorated with cresents and connected to each other by flowers.

The head is surmounted by an apex shaped like an eagle with spread wings.
