A sensational and monumentally scaled true pair of Italian late 17th-century Baroque period giltwood torchières. Each torchière is raised by a square base with most decorative scrolled feet and berried laurel carvings centering a rich oak leaf set on a most elegant lattice pattern. Each torchière is of a beautiful maiden draped in a rich flowing and finely detailed classical attire and charming flowers in her hair. The maidens stand on a rock design and hold striking cornucopias with richly carved fruit and floral designs. Above is the smooth display shelf. All original gilt throughout.
