Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Each torchère has an ovoid vase issuing a fluted stem with two tiers of scrolled candlearms. The vase which terminates in a berried finial is supported on triple guilloche cast monopodiae headed with classical masks and united by a richly cast undertier, centred by a conforming vase and cover.
The Hermes Villa was commissioned by the Viennese Emperor Franz Joseph as a retreat for the Empress Elisabeth. Built between 1882 and 1886, it was considered one of the most outstanding examples of villa architecture of the late romantic period.
The villa was to take its name from the statue of Hermes which stood in the grounds.
