The design of this plate is quite similar to those of the Karos
and Rakamaz plates. The trefoil palmette
tendrils leaning from downwards to upwards meet in the middle,
their curves surrounding the main leafy motif of the design at
the same time. In its middle axe we can find the budding, fleshy-leafed
Tree of Life with its widening upper part putting a crown-like
finish to the whole composition. The silver framing band of the
plate is unornamented.
This plate was found in an exceptionally good state.
The plate used to be deposited at the Déri Museum of Debrecen.
At present, it is in private property and not in a museum.
