Guest Book

This pair of wonderful torcheres in the French Empire style date from the 1890s to 1910s, and feature gilt candelabra with five candle arms, set upon patinated neoclassical robed figures standing on rounded bun pedestals marked "DAVID", referencing Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), the neoclassical painter and contributor to the French Empire style), and mounted on wooden pedestals with newly refinished with what appears to be mahogany and kingwood veneer, and its original bronze mounts. Measures: 88" x 18" x 18". Condition is very good. There are cracks to the veneer, and noticeable scratches and dents to the veneer and polished bronze mounts, consistent with age.
