Bronze stand for three hanging lamps: rectangular brass base-plate with a semicircular cut-out in front, supported by four lion's paws on circular plinths. At the rear of the base-plate is a moulded base, from which rises a triangular shaft with ridged corners forming plain panels on each side; at the top of each panel is an applied plaque in the form of a panther's head and front paws. At the top of the shaft is a triangular capital decorated on each face with an applied palmette; above the palmettes is a floral knob. From each corner of the capital extends a lamp-hanger in the form of voluted leaves, with a floral knob.
