Important Pair of Monumental Parcel-Gilt and Patinated Bronze Figural Torchère

$95,000per set


Mounted as lamps and cast by Ferdinand Barbedienne after models by Alexandre Falguiere and Paul Dubois. Both statues are signed on the bases. These fine torchères are reductions of a pair exhibited by Dubois at the 1867 Exposition Universelle, and were subsequently installed at the Château de Compiègne as part of the refurbishments undertaken by Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie. Dubois was appointed curator at the Luxembourg Museum in 1837 and went on to become the director of L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1878, the school where Dubois and Falguiere first received their artistic training.
