Pentagonal hall lantern in gilt bronze and glass. The five glass panels are serpentine, the tops arched. The gilt brass mounts on the lower edge and the cresting above each panel is cast with 'C' and 'S' scrolls, acanthus and flame motifs. The lantern hangs from a central urn pendant by a framework of double ‘S’ scrolls. The central five-light pendant is the upper part of a candelabra of gilt metal, the grease-pans and nozzles decorated with oak leaves, the stem also turned with leaves. This now replaced with modern light fitting.
