Col. 19: In the upper margin, a bust of a young crowned man is depicted. In the lower margin, on the right, a feast is shown; it can be the first Purim feast (Es. 9:17-23). In the text column above, an additional scene of hanging of Haman’s ten sons (Es. 9:14) is incorporated. It is designed in the same way as in the Amsterdam prototype (see "Esther scrolls with portrait medallions") - on every beam of a very high gallows, a single body is hanged. A high ladder leans on it and on its top an executioner is sitting (he is only partly visible).
Col. 20: In the upper margin, a bust of a young woman is depicted. In the lower margin, a big building is depicted that can be the king’s palace.
Col. 21: In the upper margin, a bust of a crowned woman is depicted who can be Queen Esther. In the lower margin, on the right, Jews battle their enemies (9:5-12). On the left, the royal couple enthroned is represented and it is difficult to determine to which event it alludes. It can be a moment when Esther pleads with the king for an additional day of fights (Es. 9:13).
Col. 22: In the upper margin, a bust of a man is depicted. In the lower margin, a group of people is represented who can be Jews celebrating Purim.

The scroll consists of 3 membranes containing 22 text columns with 22 lines, except for col. 19 with 11 lines divided into two parts.
Every letter ל in the words המלך occurring in the first lines of the text columns is decorated with elaborate tagim.
The text includes an enlarged ח (Es. 1:6) that is formed of two parts joined with a roof and its legs end with serifs. In the text, the enlarged letter ת (Es. 9:29) is included too. In addition, traditional enlarged and diminished letters are in col. 19; they are also decorated with elaborated tagim and in the case of two of the letters, additional strokes are drawn below them.
In the first text panel are inscribed all three benedictions preceded by an adequate Hebrew headline ברכות מגלה. Whereas the last panel contains the final benediction followed by a shortened version of ארור המן Arur Haman.
In general, the ruling is slightly visible.
The parchment is bright; both sides of the sheets are very similar so it is difficult to distinguish between the flesh and hair side of a sheet.
The membranes are glued which was relatively rare for Esther scrolls.
In the institutional and private collections, other scrolls decorated with a similar pattern are stored.
