An Impressive Pair of Napoléon III Gilt-Bronze Figural Torcheres by Goelzer and Poumaroux, Paris.
French, Circa 1890.
Signed to the plinths ‘A. GOELZER & POUMAROUX, PARIS’.
These impressive chased and patinated bronze torcheres are each modelled as a child therm figure holding aloft a vase decorated with floral garlands, issuing a flambeau shade. The figures are raised on a tapering square section volute supports with trailing foliate decoration and finely cast lion heads. The bases with four scrolling acanthus feet put down on a lobed plinth.
