Mermaids are a rare feature in Regency carving, and may be a unique feature for wall lights. The carving retains most of the original gilding. The brass nozzles and drip pans are of later date.

A pair of torchères carved as a mermaid and a merman were sold by Clifford Wright Antiques Ltd. in the 1980s.

A related drawing by John Linnell depicts a mermaid as an end support for a settee in the State Drawing Room at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire.
