A Pair of Rare 'Neo-Grec' Gilt and Patinated Bronze Torchère Stands, Attributed to Ferdinand Barbedienne.

Each torchere has an inset marble top with suspended chains, raised on a fluted column cast with acanthus and supported by a tripod base cast with arabesque scrolls and united by a concave stretched and put down on paw-cast feet.

Designs in the 'Neo-Grec' or Greek style modelled after the antique featured prominently in Barbedienne's submissions to the 1855 Paris Exposition Universelle and throughout the firms production. This rare pair of torchere stands with their fine casting and modelling are typical of the high quality work Barbedienne produced at this time.
