An unusual pair of 19th century cast bronze and gilded bronze torcheres, the spiral centre sections under dish tops above arms with three cast swan necks, the bases gilded and elaborately cast and chiselled.
Torchères were used as stands for candelabra and were usually placed in pairs on either side of a table or in the corners of a room. For a very good example see Thomas Chippendale’s original drawing circa 1760 for a torchere in the George Lock collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum . See also “English Furniture Designs of the 18th Century”, Peter Ward-Jackson, 1958, p 46 and p 119.
