Design formed of twelve heavily chased brass pyramidal cones welded together to create a star-shaped lamp, each facet adorned with bead-like spheres of colored glass. The entire piece is suspended by four 17-inch (42.5 cm) brass wire chains, that are decorated in turn with four two-inch (5 cm) brass barrel beads. The top cone opens to facilitate a candle or electrical illumination.
