  Torah coronet, Venice

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

The round coronet is divided into two parts: a base and an upper part.

The flat base is decorated with a pattern of conches, volutes and flowers. The upper border of the base bears a rope pattern. The upper part is decorated with a lower band of volutes and conches. The main part is alternatively decorated with a small and a big cartouche. The small cartouches are flanked by two volutes and by two leaves at top and at bottom. A leaf is depicted inside the cartouche which surmounts two flowers. The big cartouches are concave and are flanked by two volutes.

A plaque with an inscription and the following Sanctuary Implements are attached to them: the Shewbread Table, The seven-branched Menorah, the priestly head-gear, a hanging lamp and the Tablets of the Covenant. The dedicatory inscription is written in linear letters and reads:
