    Paired silver candelabra for two candles. Each is made in the shape of fluted column, decorated with sagging on bows garlands, fixed on stepped smooth round base, decorated with frieze of stylized Lictor’s rod with criss-crossing ribbons. Cylindrical vase on smooth round stem, with flame from its throat in the column upper part. The vase is divided into parts by flutes and complemented by hanging garlands with intertwined ribbons. Two S-shaped arms are symmetrically located on two column sides and framed by acanthus leaves and curls with rosettes, with candle cups surrounded by laurel leaves. The candelabra are made in the Neoclassical style.
