A rare pair of neoclassical parcel gilt torcheres after the Antique. Each has a dished capital enriched with low relief classical motif of anthemions and a foliate border to the top edge, above a fluted column and terminating in a tripod of animal feet spaced with open anthemion and classical scrolls.
In the style of Karl Friedrich Schinkel.

The design for these unusual torcheres is drawn from discoveries made at Herculaneum in the early 19th century and illustrated by visitors to the site. Johan Mathaus Mauch redrew these with the express intention of his work being used by craftsmen as models. A page of his work is in the Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, and is illustrated in K.F. Schinkel Mobel und Interieur page 214.
