A pair of giltwood torcheres, each with a circular dished top above a shaft set on a scrolled foliate carved tripod base.

Adam Bowett notes that ‘[a]t the beginning of the 1690s the scrolled leg was the most popular form of leg for tables with stands’ (‘English Furniture 1660 – 1714: From Charles II to Queen Anne’, Antique Collectors’ Club, 2002, p.279). Bowett illustrates stands of comparable form – with a tapered low shaft and scrolled tripod legs – housed at Knole, Beningborough Hall and Drayton House (pp.279-80).

One of a pair of richly carved and silvered gesso candlestands of a similar design is illustrated in ‘Country House Lighting 1660-1890’ (Figs 62 and 63, p.112). This pair is reputedly from Ham House, and is now at Colonial Williamsburg (‘Country House Lighting 1660-1890’, Leeds City Art Galleries, 1992).
