The torcheres have circular dish tops with a fluted frieze with patera and ball bead carved decoration.
Surrounding each frieze are three well carved rams heads with swag decoration and husk carving following down the monopodia bases.
The legs lead down to a concave tri-form support and terminate with hoof feet on a concave tri-form base with carved frieze.
These are very decorative pieces either as free- standing items or perfect for displaying vases, bronzes etc.
