This rare rimmonis made in the shape of a small three-tiered and six-ribbed crown. Its surface is filled with a floral ornament that resembles artworks from Zhytomyr. This ornament features rockile frames, stems with flowers and acanthus leaves. The central tier is formed of three griffin statuettes, which support the upper one. The rimmonim is topped by a tiny six-ribbed crown. In the item's center is a hollow cylindrical stand to be fixed on Torah scroll. Tiny bells are fastened to the palmettes spaced between the ribs of the lower crown. In the rockile frames are inscriptions in Hebrew.
