The Torah^case is made of wood .

The body is cylindrical and covered with blue velvet . It has two clasps. Golden ribbons are attached to the borders of the case by round-topped nails. A rectangular parchment bearing a dedicatory inscription and framed by ribbons is attached to the upper left side of the body. The top of the Torah^case is plain with two staves and two Rimon mounts.

A dedicatory inscription appears in fifteen horizontal lines and one arched line. It is written in black outline letters, and reads:

עמ!י )עזרי מעם ה'(..עש!וא )עושה שמים וארץ(##כי מציון תצא תורה ודבר ה' מיורשלים##וזאת##התורה אשר שם##משה לפני בני ישראל##תורה צוה לנו משה מו!קי )מורשה קהילת יעקב( וזאת התורה שהובא מעיה!ק ירושלים##בהשתדלות מו' חייא אברהם יוביג)-?(##שהקדישוה לעילוי נשמת המרוחמת##מרת אייכאן בת מו' אברהם שולטי נ!ע )נשמתו עדן(##נפטרה כ!ג מנחם ה'תר!ע תנצב!ה יה'ר )יהי רצון( שתשכון נשמתה בג!ע )בגן עדן( עם נש' אמהות##והמשתדלים במצוה זו יהיה שכרם##כפול מן השמים בבנים ובנות ועושר וכו'##אמן יצא לאור עולם חדש אלול ה'ת'ר'ע##ליצירה נכתב ע!י הסופר מו' נסים סג'ירה (Ps. 121:2,[int.])
