Pair of Monumental French Gilt and Patinated Bronze and Rouge Marble Figural Torcheres
Price upon request
A pair of large French parcel-gilt patinated bronze and rouge marble 13-light torchieres after the models by Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse (1824-1887). Each torchere modeled as a classically-draped maiden holding aloft an urn issuing scrolling acanthus branches, each terminating with a circular drip-pan and candle holder, raised on festooned marble plinth mounted with ribbon-tied garlands of fruit and flowers, on paw feet. Electrified and working properly.
Height: 114” (289 cm)
