Late 19thC Dark-Stained Oak Jardiniere Stand or Torchere on Tripod Base, by Edwards & Roberts
A substantial late 19thC piece by a top quality maker and in very good condition for its age, with circular shallow dished top with moulded edge on a column with Corinthian-style capital over a gadroon-reeded section, moulded stop over an acanthus-carved bulb over a classical urn on a dramatic acanthus-carved & scrolled tripod base with striking paw feet and with the maker's ivorine label beneath, this grand torchere, or more correctly, jardiniere stand, would surely once have been adorned with an aspidistra or other extravagant botanical display and will undoubtedly impress in any stylish contemporary home, restaurant or commercial environment.
Dia. Top 36cm (14.25") & Height 137cm (54")
Footprint 57.5cm x 57.5cm x 57.5cm (22.75" x 22.75" x 22.75")
This is a late 19thC piece, so you may expect the mature character & patina of age, including some light marks on the top and other very minor wear & tear but, otherwise it's in very good, clean & sound condition, ready to use in your home.
