This exceptional decorative centrepiece is crafted in the luxurious Baroque style, in fine materials including ceramic and gilt bronze. The piece is formed as a gilt bronze support holding aloft a ceramic dish, all supported by a tri-form black marble base. The gilt bronze support, leading upwards from the base, is particularly striking and is cast as three mythical dolphins entwined to form a central column. The gilt bronze extends to encase the round ceramic dish, with a rim cast with further dolphins, sea creatures, flowers and foliage.

The ceramic dish held within the gilt bronze support is intricately decorated all over. To the centre is a painted bouquet of summer flowers, surrounded by a red ground to the edges which is ornamented with scrolling arabesques and foliage in white and gilt. The outer side of the dish features abstract forms in red and gilt on a white ground.
