Abstract: We consider a reductive dual pair $ (G, G')$ in the stable range with $ G'$ the smaller member and of Hermitian symmetric type. We study the theta lifting of nilpotent $ K'_{\mathbb{C}} $-orbits, where $ K'$ is a maximal compact subgroup of $ G'$ and we describe the precise $ K_{\mathbb{C}}$-module structure of the regular function ring of the closure of the lifted nilpotent orbit of the symmetric pair $ ( G, K) $. As an application, we prove sphericality and normality of the closure of certain nilpotent $ K_{\mathbb{C}} $-orbits obtained in this way. We also give integral formulas for their degrees.
