Empire ormolu pair of candelabra
Each with an acanthus-wrapped baluster shaft headed by a star-studded sphere supported by three owls and surmounted by a vase-shaped nozzle, the shaped branches issuing from lion's head, each nozzle in the shape of a flaming antique oil lamp, on a tripartite base decorated with antique masks within concave medaillons, the angles with trailing husks, on paw feet, the stepped triangular plinth and circular base with palmette rim.
