Fol. 41: In the upper part of the text space the initial word "The King" (המלך) in Shaharit, is written in display script within a rectangular pen-work panel, occupying the width of the text space. The panel is filled with a red and blue criss-cross background decorated with blue and red foliate scrolls and framed by a border filled with scrolls, each enclosing a palmette in spared ground technique. The border is framed by pairs of bow-shaped patterns in alternating red and green and by stems with buds. Four medallions enclosing two-legged hybrids in spared ground technique on blue and red-brownish (to check the colour!) ground decorate the corners of the panel. Blue and red flourishes extend from the medallions along the sides of the text column into the upper and lower margins, creating a frame to the page. Two colourful long-tailed birds are perched on the tendrils on the right side of the upper margin; their heads are partially trimmed. Remnants of another bird are visible on the left side of this margin, which is covered now by a sale inscription (see History).

Brownish spots caused by water are scattered all over the page. The original colours are faded and the present appearance seems to be the result of a later overpainting of the previous decoration.

The heads of the three birds are trimmed by the later binder.

Summary and Remarks
The filigree scrolls are rendered in a different style compared to the other panels in the manuscript: the scrolls are larger, containing leaves and flowers in red and blue. They were probably executed or repainted later as a result of damage caused to the page. The poor state of the page, compared to the rest of the manuscript, is probably due to the fact that for some time it was the first folio
