Pair of gilded and sculpted bronze candelabras with four branches each. The branches curve to form trumpets and foliated scrollwork on one end and sockets on the other end. The sockets are intricately embellished with openwork foliage and flowers. Just below the light branches, two ibis birds extend their wings behind them to support the stem. Below the ibises, the stem transforms into a vase shape that is decorated with winged women and Cupids. Each candelabra rests on a rectangular, green marble base that is decorated with water-leaf, palmettes, allegorical figures of Fame and Victory, and trophies.
