Torah crown, known as keter is decoration on the top of the Torah scroll which is stored in a vertical position, it is one of the elements of klej kodesz  ̶  utensils and decorations of the scroll.
Six-arched, closed, covered with a canopy with a small crown and a bunch of flowers at the top. The profiled rim, decorated with two appliqué, openwork bands. The crown arches, alternated with figures of birds, are in the shape of lions standing on their hind legs with the front legs resting on narrow, flat bands in the form of a twig supporting the canopy with a drapery in the shape of leaves. On the ends of the leaves are holes designed for hanging bells. The canopy had the form of a small crown with a smooth rim with the inscription in Hebrew on it:

כתר תורה כתר כהונה כתר מלכות כתר שם טוב תקעט
The Crown of Torah, the Crown of Priesthood, the Crown of Royalty, the Crown of Good Name 579” [= 1819].

The inscription is the motif from Pirkei Avot 4, 17. The canopy is topped with a bunch of flowers.
