Each squirrel holds a branchs, face the other and have a nut-like knob on its head. Two rectangular plaques support the columns and flank a medallion bears inscription which read from right to left in square letters:

"Haim Leyb son of Rabbi Mendel, Nehamah Haia daughter of Rabbi Sender Goldshtein".
The central medallion is surrounded by a garland of scrolls. Two birds facing each other are depicted below the plaques in the lower corners. A dominant crown, decorated with a pattern of dots and diamonds, is depicted in the upper central part of the shield.
Scrolls and flowers fill the remaining areas between the various motives and a pattern of dots decorate the edges of the shield.
