Code 212-1 Antique Painted Cast Iron French Torchere, C. 1870

This elegant, antique Louis XVI style painted cast iron torchere can be used inside or out. Classical, architectural, human faces, and elements of natural derivation are all dominant motifs throughout the entire torchere. The fluted brazier has draped garlands of flowers, floral drops, and fretwork handles. A single candleholder surrounded by reed and ribbon molding is at the top of the brazier. All this rests upon a pedestal form with fluting on the top and bottom ending in stiff leaf motifs. At the top of the central fluted shaft are two female masks connected with drapery swags. The fluted shaft ends in stiff leaf acanthus atop another urn having twisted flutes with a fluted base. The tripod base has floral margent of bellflowers interspersed between linear coin molding resting upon tulip shaped feet.

At some point in history, this torchere was given French electrification.

Condition: Minor chipping to paint, some rusting to iron, old French electrification.
