The torchères retain some of the original gilding. The statuary marble inserts are later replacements.

A suite of six torchères with concave triform bases with many related features was supplied by Chippendale to Edwin Lascelles at Harewood House circa 1779. Characteristic elements like the rams’ heads, guilloche bands and acanthus carving are virtually identical.

Robert Adam designed similar stands with concave sides for the Earl of Derby’s house on Grosvenor Square in London and for William Weddell of Newby Hall, Yorkshire, England.
