20 Description

The tower-shaped Torah finial consists of a shaft, a body and an apex.

The cylindrical shaft tapers towards the body and is mounted over a round raised base.  The base is decorated with a whorle of leaves radiating from the centre. The body comprises a bowl-shaped base decorated with a frieze of foliate pattern flanked by two medallions and whorls of leaves around the base. The base carries two hexagonal storeys in diminishing sizes.

The open-work facets enclose arched openings blocked by two repeating sets of identical implements: a seven-branched menorah (Ex. 25:31) on top and a vase on the lower tier. A parapet made of a palmette flanked by scrolls is set on top of each tier. Pillars topped by a crescent and carry chains with bells are attached to each corner on both storeys.

A  cilyndrical unit with curved edges surmounts the body and is topped by a small dome, which terminates with a bud-shaped apex.

A dedication is punched in square letters between a double-lined frame encircling the cilynder:

"לונה לבית אליהו כשכש".

"(Dedicated by or for) Luna of the house of Eliyahu Khashkhash."
