The scroll is decorated in a folk style. Along with the upper and lower margins there are decorative belts filled with foliate and floral ornaments in which birds are woven. The Hebrew text of the Book of Esther is inscribed within the roundels, except for col. 8; such layout was rarely employed in megillot Esther. Around majority of the text panels, four illustrations chronicling the Book of Esther narrative and/or figures of Ester story protagonists are placed. All of them are labeled in Hebrew in the same handwriting as the text of the Megillah is copied.
