The detachable reservoir with leaf-cast decoration centred with a berried finial within a gadrooned border, over a tapered, reeded and fluted font to a dolphin-head support with bulrushes and, an applied acanthus loop handle, the circular spreading base of seashells and aquatic fauna; the dolphin’s mouth issuing the argand-device, a drip reservoir and a platform supporting the etched glass tulip-shades. These table lamps are designed in 'antique' Grecian bronze fashion and suggest the deity Venus which is here represented by a spouting dolphin on plinth bases similar to an engraving by Piranesi in his Vasi of 1778
