The scroll is hand-decorated with various types of ornamentation; only some of them are directly related to the Esther story. It opens with a decoration surrounding all three benedictions recited before the Megillah reading. They are flanked by two columns decorated with colorful flowers and leaves and similar columns separate most of the text panels.
This section is followed by the first column of the text of the Book of Esther that opens with the initial word ויהי inscribed in large, hand-drawn letters; every letter is separated in it and surrounded with a filigree ornament. In the same way, the word איש in the third column is highlighted; additionally, it is flanked by a floral motif. The rest of the text is copied within arches. Above them, a floral ornament is drawn with a pen and ink, and between them, in square-like frames, colorful figurative scenes are placed but the latter are absent on the third sheet. A different type of decoration appears in the tenth column containing section listing names of Haman's sons (Es. 9:6-10).
Large words, entirely painted, with small circles in the half of their vertical components are incorporated in the text; some of them are also framed. Additionally, enlarged letters forming the Tetragrammaton and large, letters פ with a decorative tendril inside are included in the text.
