The brown rectangular Parokhet is a cloth decorated with floral motifs, enclosing a bordeaux rectangular core at the top center. The core bears a Hebrew inscription written in square linear letters arranged in six lines that read:
"קל"ה (קודש לה')/לע"נ (לעילוי נשמת) יוסף שם טוב בן ג'ויה/שנפטר ט"ז סיון תש"י/ואשתו שרה בת נידה/שנפטרה כ"ד אדר א' תש"ח/ת'נ'צ'ב'ה (תהיה נשמתם צרורה בצרור החיים)"
Dedication to the Lord, for the exaltation of the soul of Joseph (Yoseph) Shem Tov son of ioia, who passed away on the 16th in the month of Sivan, (5)710 (1.5.1950), and his wife Sarah daughter of Nida who passed away on the 24th of Adar 1 (5)708 (5.3.1948), may their souls be bound up in the bond of life.
At the center of the cloth is an elliptic floral motif that comprises six flowers pointing outwards, enclosing an open flower surrounded by four scrolls. Four similar wreaths pointing towards the center are in each corner of the cloth. Fleur de lys and stems with flowers are spread around the cloth. A strip consisting of S shaped stems with open flowers frames the cloth.
Twelve rings are attached to the top of the Prokhet.
The Parokhet is a secondary use. The cloth was probably a bed cover.
