Fol. 37:

Two red filigree panels on the right part of the text column, one at the beginning of the page, the second at the lower part. The upper panel is a roundel enclosing the initial display letter aleph א for the word "Thou" ( אתה ) in the additional blessing in the Amidah for Sabbath Eve. On the right side of the panel a grotesque face is attached, with a balloon-shaped tongue protruding from its mouth and straight-standing hair from which a balloon-shaped flourish extends into the upper margin; extending from the left of the panel is a smaller human face in profile wearing a high hat.

The lower panel, enclosing the initial word "Blessed" ( ברוך ) in the repetition of the Amidah, is decorated on the left with a human face in profile, with open mouth and wearing the same high hat.

The panels are decorated with stylized club motif scrolls within medallions, and by flourishes and tendrils extending along the inner margin, ending with loop-shapes.
