Modelled as a cherub and infant fawn holding foliate cast branches terminating in beaded drip pans, above a fluted columnar plinth base with laurel leaves.

The enfant figures derive from celebrated models executed by Clodion in the 1770s. Such models were extremely fashionable in the 19th century, particularly with English collectors in the 1820s and 1830s and enjoyed continued popularity throughout the century. Related candelabra can be found in the Musée du Louvre, Paris and in the Wallace Collection, London.
