Fol. 26:

The initial word “I would thank you” (אודך) opening the Yozer for Shabbat Hanukkah (Davidson ___), is written within a red filigree panel which occupies the upper third of the page and the text space width. The word is in large dark brown display script, with a small stylized rosette decorating the leg of each letter.

The panel is filled with filigree foliated scrolls executed in red ink. Two medallions, one enclosing a trefoil leaf and the second one an animal in spared-ground technique on a blue and purple background, are depicted within the space of the letters dalet and final khaf. A blue border, decorated with red, blue and purple semi-circles (?), tendrils and fleuronné, frame the panel, extending along the text space. Below the text, a crowned hybrid is depicted in violet pen-work. In the upper corners of the panel the blue strip ends with a trefoil on the right and a fleur de lys on the left.
