You are viewing an exquisite pair of bronze female blackamoor torcheres that stand in at an impressive five and a half feet tall. I hope the photos do this fine pair some justice, they are certainly more impressive in the flesh. They have been cast from the finest bronze which has a wonderful patina - gold for the dress and the bowl they hold up and black or their bodies and heads. They also stand on a circular white marble pedestal base. These really are an impressive pair and would look great as part of your home interiors scheme. They would look great in a hall or entrance foyer. The casting is superb, the artist has really caught the beauty and poise of the females with great skill. Observe details like their facial features and the wonderful way their dresses have been rendered. They each hold a gold bowl aloft and they are a perfect pair. We bought these from an architectural salvage company in Regents Park after they were originally bought from a local residence. We suspect they may originally be French in origin although we do not know the foundry they were cast in. They are both offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away and we will ship these to anywhere in the world.
