  Torah crown, Genoa

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1986

The coronet is made of silver and consists of a base and a wreath.

The base is round and it has a horizontal band decorated with a garland linked by few knots from where is hanging a Star of David. The band is delimited by two rows of a rope pattern. Under the band there is a dedicatory inscription.

The wreath is round and in the shape of five pointed arches. The arches are decorated with the identical reliefed motif: The arched Tablets of the Law surmounted by a coronet and set on a pedestal composed of two volutes flanking an acanthus leaf. An arched garland flanks the Tablets which are set on a conch-like background. Between each couple of arches an acanthus leaf is depicted.

A bar is attached to the inner side of the coronet. A dedicatory inscription is engraved in linear letters and reads:

מגולת ישראל בג'נובה לבת ציון המשוחררת תשי!ד לפ"ק.

"From the Israel diaspora in Genova to the liberated people of Israel (5)714(=1954)"
