All rests above the architecture of a deep cove mold with spheres above a flower with floral sprays to each side bound at the ends with flowing acanthus leaves in an ogee profile. The later glass is framed with leaf capped columns over rosettes and joined at the base by a cove with egg and dart-like detail. Old  patinaed finish with minor restorations. H. 76″ , w. 32″.
