The Italian Baroque was synonymous with splendour and luxury, and this fine and large torchere stand recreates the style of the era. Crafted in silvered metal, it takes a triangular form, and is heavily embellished all over in the repousse technique with scrolls, shells, foliate motifs and flowers. The design is so intricately worked that the piece glitters and gleams in the light.
Sitting on three majestic paw feet, the design of the stand tapers upwards towards a narrowed plinth support to the top. This stand would make a truly magnificent base for a torchere or lamp, or could be used simply as a decorative piece.
