A pair of two-light candelabra in white marble, fire-gilt bronze and crystal. A round column of white marble stands on a tiered square base. On top of that a high shaft ending in a pine cone and two branches in gilt bronze. The candelabra are decorated with various crystal shapes like peardrops, ovals and icicles.
The many facetted crystal shapes reflect the light of the candles in a vivid way. This effect would be intensified when the candelabra are placed in front of a mirror.
