A magnificent silver candelabra with six scones designed as a flower bud, the top tier supports an open flower shaped glass bowl in the centre, thus partly functioning as an epergne.

The base of the epergne is decorated with Acanthus pattern and Armorial Bearings stating that it was presented by the people of Rochdale, England, to William Sharman Crawford Esq. of Crawfordsburn for representing them in the British parliament for 11 years.
