Description

The lambrequin aprons of these torchères are similar to those of a pair of pier tables at Broadlands, a Mayhew and Ince commission, see Hugh Roberts, 'The Ince and Mayhew Connection - Furniture at Broadlands - I,' Country Life, January 29, 1981, p. 289, fig. 1 and fig. 8 (detail of lambrequin).

 

A similar pair of George III giltwood and gilt-composition tripod torcheres possibly supplied to the 11th Viscount Kilmorey, Mourne Park, Kilkeel, Co.
