הקדש לק"ק )לקהל קדוש( אלגזי יב"ץ )יראו בנחמת ציון( לע"נ )לעילוי נשמת( מ"א )מורי אבי( החה"מ )החשוב המכובד( יצחק רוסו נ"ע )נוחו עדן( ובתו היקרה הנ )הנחמדה( הב )הבתולה( קש )קצרת שנים( מרת שרה מ"כ תשרי 8765

"Dedicated to the holy congregation Algazi may they witness the comfort of Zion for the exaltation of the soul of my teacher my father Isaac Russo may he rest in peace and his precious daughter the nice the virgin young Mrs. Sarah.... ....Tishrey 5678 (1918)"

The upper part depicts the Sanctuary Implements: the Tables of the Covenant (13427), the Menorah (13430), the priestly blessing (13432), funnel flowers, and a bouquet of flowers. Each motif is framed by foliate branches which emerge from a fleur des lys. The coronet has wavy edges.
