20th century, both crowned with floral wreaths, one example holding a pair of doves, the other a clusters of grapes, each with an upraised torch set with frosted glass flame-form shades, electrified.
h. 86" and 88-1/2"

Provenance: Estate of John Elliot Bradshaw, Houston, Texas.

Notes: This pair flanked the front entrance of the Bradshaw home, standing as guardians lighting the way.


In overall good condition with scattered nicks, areas of abrading and faint oxidation. Expected weathering of surface. Some soiling/accretions, especially in more deeply modeled areas. All consistent with material and usage. One torchere needs rewiring.
