The decoration made by one artist executed in pen and ink gray water-colours (grisaille) and gold powder.

 

  1. Title page framed by a full-page baroque architectural setting (fol. 1)
  2. Three illustrative panels framed by painted black borders: Sabbath Eve kiddush (fol. 17v), Elijah ascending to Heaven (fol. 44v) and Jacob wrestling with the Angel (fol. 46).
  3. III.    Five initial word panels consist of baroque cartouches (fols. 4, 11, 19, 28v, 36v).
  4. IV.    Small rosettes in brown ink partly at end-of-section signs on: e.g. fol. 9v and 53, beneath.
  5. V.      A hand with a pointing index finger is depicted in the text space pointing to the next prayer, executed in the light brown ink of the text: (fols. 9v, 10v, 14, 15, 22v, 26v, 32v, 35v).
  6. VI.    Gold fillet framing the text space on fols. 1- 50 (e.g. fols. 1, 4, 11, 17v). The gold is mostly flaked off leaving the green ground. Fols. 50v-57v are not framed.
