According to Vivian Mann (curator, Jewish Museum, New York), the inscription translates:' the servant of God, Jeshua ha-Levi, the pure Sephard' [ie. a descendant from Spanish Jews], and on the other side the date in the Jewish calendar: 1789-90. The floral decoration is Moroccan in style, suggesting a possible Moroccan origin, perhaps from the Jewish community in Essaouira (J. Rudoe, 28.11.05).

Exhibition label :: G1 Enlightenment Gallery :: Circumcision shield Silver, possibly Morocco, 1700 - 1800 This shield belonged to a man qualified to perform circumcision, a mohel. The inscription describes him as ‘The servant of God, Jeshua ha-Levi, the pure Sephardi’. This indicates pride in being a descendent of Spanish and Portuguese Jews. Circumcision of baby boys is a fundamental part of the Jewish religion. It usually takes place eight days after birth and is an occasion for celebration. P&E 1880,0514.3
