The following description was prepared by William Gross:
Libya was one of the very few places in which wooden Rimmonim were regularly used. The collonade form as on this pair is one of the two most prevalent shapes. The wood is turned gessoed, painted and then scratched to bring out the red highlights from the red paint underneath the gold covering. The top of the collonade is drilled with holes around to receive the stalks of greenery and flowers that decorated the Rimmonim on festival days.
