All are topped with faux candle lights. Between each light there is gilt laurel and sunflower decoration. Perched along the top rim of the tole piece are alternating palmettes and tiny finials. The bottom is graced with acanthus, more palmettes and a fine pinecone finial, the top by a lovely torchere. Four ornate chains connect the body to its gilt canopy, complete with flowers and pierced palmettes. It's a truly impressive piece that will elevate any space. Chain and Canopy add 13.5"to fixture
