Each floor standing lamp is modelled as a nine-light candelabrum emerging from a Sevres style porcelain vase, supported by a tri-form ormolu stand. The stand terminates in ormolu paw feet and is mounted with various ormolu decorations including lions' heads joined by drapes, ribbons, plaques and acanthus leaves. The three supports are joined at the centre by a dark blue ground parcel gilt porcelain vase with an ormolu finial.

Above the support the Sevres style porcelain vases are ovoid in shape and feature very finely painted bodies, around the full circumference of the vases, of scenes depicting women, putti, and mythical sea creatures in a seascape, on Sevres blue ground with gilt floral decorations. Each vase is signed to the painted scene 'G. Poitevin', for Georges Émile Poitevin, one of the most skilled porcelain artists working in the Paris in the second half of the 19th Century. The top of each vase is mounted with the nine light candelabrum, with each tulip form light issuing from scrolling ormolu branches with circular drip pans.
