By tradition, from the old London Stock Exchange which was partially demolished in 1966. Possibly previously from the Bank of England which housed the original London Stock Exchange in its Rotunda. The oak leaf and acorn decoration featured on these gasoliers was also used in the ceiling of the Bank of England.
