© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1993

The round coronet is divided into a base and an upper part. The convexed base is decorated with an oval medallion and a flower alternatly, framed by C scrolls. The base is topped by a smooth band bearing an inscription in square linear letters which reads around the coronet:

"Dedicated to the holy congregation Algazi may they witness the comfort of Zion for the exaltation of the soul of my teacher my father Isaac Russo may he rest in peace and his precious daughter the nice the virgin young Mrs. Sarah.... ....Tishrey 5678 (1918)"

The upper part depicts the Sanctuary Implements: the Tables of the Covenant (13427), the Menorah (13430), the priestly blessing (13432), funnel flowers, and a bouquet of flowers. Each motif is framed by foliate branches which emerge from a fleur des lys. The coronet has wavy edges.

A bar with holes for the staves is attached across the lower part of the coronet.
