"נדבת רגינא אסולין ת"ם)תבורך מנשים(" The silver tower like rimon consists of a shaft, a body and an apex. ## The cylindrical shaft is smooth and tapers toward the top. The hexagonal body is mounted over a bowled base and is surmounted by a hemispheric cap topped with a bud. The base is smooth and unadorned. ##Each facet of the body is pierced with two horsheshoe arched windows one above the other. An engraved architectural and vegetal design follows the outline of the windows. From the bottom intersection of each facet hangs a chain and conical bell. The inscription on the shaft is engraved in filled square linear letters and reads from the foot towards the body: "A gift from Regina Asulin, blessed above women (Judges 5:24)"
