HSM : End of scroll, reverse side: three shelf-marks placed one above the other: 396, 410 (former numbers) and 2442. The stamp "Biblioteka" appears occasionally in the scroll. The double text columns are framed by bands with rectangular panels of copperplate decoration colored by hand and set in gilt double borders. The upper and lower bands comprise 20 text illustrations, most of them containing two succesive scenes, colored in red, yellow, gold yellow, orange, reddish-brown, green, bordeaux and gray. The illustrations are interspersed with small panels situated above and below the intercolumnar spaces. The panels enclose an intricate labyrinth motif colored in gold powder and turquoise. The intercolumnar spaces are decorated with framed panels filled with stylized floral motifs colored in red, yellow, orange and green. The edges at the beginning and end of the megillah are decorated with large, symmetrical floral scrolls. The scrolls at the beginning are inhabited by the "Four animals" and the scrolls at the end extend from stylized vases colored blue, yellow, green, bordeaux and brown.
