Two black patinated bronze female figures, wearing classical–style drapery, hold an urn bearing a three-branched candelabrum with a central stem topped by a gilt bronze basket of fruit. The candelabra stand on column shafts of oak veneered with maple burl and decorated with copper fluting; the drapery and bases are of chased gilt bronze.
