Horizontal rectangle. Three designs for candlesticks. At left: the feet of the candlestick consist of rumps of birds. Within the base is the inscription: qui ci va / lo stemma / di chi li fa fare; the shaft consists of four parts. In the lowest one the column rises from a calyx. In the second are festoons. The third is scalloped; the fourth fluted. Upon the capital stands a bowl, from which the socket rises. Center: the pedestal of the candlestick consists of lateral leaf scrolls and a central support at which is written: qui ci va lo stemma; the lower part of the shaft is a vase, above which two calyces rise. The upper one supports similar motifs to the left one. At right, the base is decorated with festoons supported by masks. The shaft is a foliated column. That at left is marked with a cross in ink. Each of the candlesticks are numbered with the letters D, E, F from left to right.
