  Torah coronet

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1988

The silver coronet consists of a base and a wreath.

The base is round and bears cartouches. In each cartouche is a different animal. Five arches are attached to the base. The arches are decorated in the middle with a double flower and at the top with an acanthus leave. The arches are framed by volutes. Between every two arches is a loop for a bell. The arches are surmounted by a domical upper part. The later is decorated with a band of leave pattern, and bears a dedicatory inscription. The arches are surmounted by a crest in the shape of a crown similar to the crown.

An undulating apex is mounted over the crest. A bar is attached to the inner face of the crown. It has two openings for the rod. The dedicatory inscription is engraved in latin letters, and reads: Elek Artur es neje Grunfeld Regina "Elek Artur and his wife Grunfeld Regina"
