    pair bronze lights signed gregoire statue liberty torcheres lamp

    You are viewing a gorgeous pair of French female figurines in the form of torcheres or lights - they really remind me of the great Statue of Liberty, the gift from France to the United States. They are a perfect left and right and each maiden holds aloft the light. The casting on this pair is amazing as I hope the photos illustrate, the patina has a lovely dark brown finish.

     
    The piece is signed L Gregoire on the base near the foot (please see close up picture). Jean Louis Gregoire was a famous French sculptor who lived 1840-1890 and these have to be one of his famous works. Each figure holds aloft the frosted crystal glass flames from which the light emits. They come pre-wired so it would be easy to hook these up to a light source.
     
    The features of the figures has been expertely sculpted and these would make for a fine addition to any interiors scheme. Check out details like the sea serpent on the base of one of them, plus their fine features and intricately textured hair. They are both offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away. We bought these from a dealer in Paris whilst on a continental buying trip.
