Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The torchere is formed as a semi-clad young man wearing an elaborate turban and fringed sash with similarly decorated tied drapery to his waist, holding a torch fitment and standing on a square cushion, the faux porphry base with trompe l'oeil fringed drapery.
The torchere rests on an ebonised base with floral decoration.
It has a later lamp fitted.
It is a very beautiful and rather unique example of Venetian art.
You are viewing this item in its excellent original untouched condition. Any restoration that is required will be accomplished before delivery and is included in the price.
