This is likely of no reference to the origins of the lamp. The figures are raised over a handsome stylized base with relief motifs of a distinctly Neoclassical inspiration, many borrowed directly from the motifs of the Louis XVI period.A lion's head is positioned between the footer of each figure over the black-and-yellow breccia stone over a bronze rim. An exquisite and rare find.
