The cylindrical alms box is composed of a receptacle, a lid and handles. The receptacle has a round raised base bearing a circle of acanthus like leaves around it. The body of the receptacle bears two square frames formed by acanthus like leaves one on either side of it. The center of each frame bears a dedicatory inscription in square filled letters which reads on front:
נעשה ממעות / הצדקה דח"ק [דחברה קדישא] / גו"ח [גמילות וחסד] בק"ק [בקהילת קודש] ס"ה [?] / ופאפאלקע
"Made from the charity coins of the burial society and benevolant society in the holy community ?? and Popolke". The inscription on the other side reads:
שנת תק"ע ל[פ"ק]
"The year (5)570 =".
There is a foliate pattern in between the frames as well. The lid bears the same decoration as the base and has a trapezoid unit in the center for coins. There are ear shaped handles on either side.
