The arches are encircled by a band bearing an inscription in square letters : "תזכו לשנים רבות ציון בן יעקב אשר נולד ר"ח )ראש חודש( חשון תרע"ב ר"פ ת"ל ו"ל )רפאות תהי לך ושקוי לעצמותיך( לחיים בשמחת ירושתו )ירושלים תכונן ותבנה(." "May you be granted many years, Zion son of Jacob Asher, born on the new moon of Heshvan, (5)672 (1911) Cheers for the joy of, may Jerusalem be built and established". (Prov.3:8). A floral band, which encircles the bowl's inner rim, is interspersed with cartouches each bearing part of the inscription in square, linear letters, which reads as follows: נכתב ט"ז סיון בשנת התרצ"ח, "Written on the 16th of Sivan, 5698 (1938)".
