France,Late 19th Century
Finely cast gilt and patinated bronze with female winged goddess surmounting a five-light sphere with figural lion heads terminating into scrolled acanthus leaf arms over opposing ormolu eagles on a laurel wreath supported by Corinthian columns on exceptional classical dolphin tripod bases. Truly an unbelievable pair.

From the collection of a Greenville, Rhode Island woman.
Light wear to patinated surface, would benefit from a cleaning, otherwise good condition.
