The second inscription reads:"Behold, in the year 1917 the Societa de Bien Hacer, today called 'Ahavah va-Hesed', may God protect it, was renewed. They bought this decanter, with a complete acquisition, from the holy distinguished [men] through the efforts of the laborers Vacion(?) ben Solomon, Jacob ben Asher ha-Levi, Michael ben Abraham Basch, 1919." A society of this name operated in Sofia in 1919, and may have acquired this decanter at that time.
