Description

The candelabra stand on square-shaped crystal and ormolu plinths, which are decorated with pierced architectural balustrades, topped by miniature flaming urns. Each candelabrum rests on a splayed ormolu foot, which is ornamented with oak leaves and acorns. Above, the candelabra stems are crafted from smooth, opaque crystal. These are topped by three ormolu branches, which terminate in wide drip-pans, urn-shaped capitals, and simple beaded sconces.

The candelabra will look beautiful once fitted with candles, since the light will reflect off their gilt surfaces and illuminate their crystal stems.
