The pewter plate is round, with a raised rim. The central decoration depicts the four elders sons of Jacob each holds his sign. They are standing below a tree that growes at the center. Reuben stands at the centre leaned on a tree behind him, Simeon and Levi are on the left and Judah is on the right. Reuben is depicted frontal with a flag in his left hand. Simeon and Levi are depicted in profile, walking towards Reuben, each holds a sword in his right hand. The three broders are smooth shaven except a mustach. Judah is bearded and is depicted in profile, turning towards Reuben and holding a lion in his hands. Around the rim are the names of the sons inscribes in square filled letters and separated by a flower. Anticlockwise it reads:

"ראובן-שמעון-ולוי-יהודה" "Reuben Simeon and Levi Judah"
