The Torah coronet is made up of eleven rectangular units connected by gilded twisted columns.
The facets are adjusted to the prismatic shape of the Torah case, which they are crowning. Each facet is an open-work façade with a trefoil arched gate set against a floral background of winding branches with roses (fig. 1). The arch is flanked by two columns supported by bases and topped by capitals shaped as a whorl of leaves. A stepped architrave surmounts the gate, while a lotus tops the gate and a lily is enclosed within the trefoil arch.
A parapet is set at the lower part of the gate, surmounted by the Tables of the Covenant. The arched Tables are inscribed with the beginnings of the Ten Commandments, five on each side, topped by a flower.
Each facet is crowned by a crenellated crown surmounting a strip with the Hebrew inscription: "כתר תורה" "The Crown of Torah". A rectangle with a blank ellipse in its centre is engraved on the base of each facet.
Two twisted columns with acorn shaped finials are bordering each facet, and serve as hinges. Each is mounted over a cylindrical base and topped by a floral capital.
Hooks for suspending the coronet to the case are attached to the back side of each facet.
