The silver tas consists of a plate, a crest and a chain.

The rectangular plate is curved at the top. The borders are decorated with foliate scrolls. The plate bears the Tables of the Covenant inscribed with the first words of the Decalogue. They are supported by two rampant lions facing each other. An undulating column with a rounded knob capital apears on the other side of each lion. The rectangular frame for the calender tablets is set in the lower part of the plate. At the back there is a bar with a removable dooor bearing a dedicatory inscription.

The background decorations apear against a punched background. A crest shaped as a lobed and beaded crown is atttached to the plate. The plate hangs by a chain inserted through three rings which are attached to the back of the plate.

A dedicatory inscription is engraved in outline letters on the back of the plate. It reads from the top:

"בעה' )=בעזרת השם( נצבים וילך ##הפטורה שוש אשיש )ישעיה סא,י( ##תרע##יונה עקיבה אלטר זויערטייג## עם זוגתו פרימוט"

"With the Lord's help(int.).....##.....I will greatly rejoice(Is.61:10) ##(5)670=1910 ##Jonah Akiva Alter Sauerteig## with his wife Frimut"

The dedicatory inscription on the door of the calendar tablets is engraved in linear letters, and reads:
