Thomas Hope style ebonised and water gilded torchere
Thomas Hope style ebonised and water gilded torchere

An early 19th century style ebonised and water gilded torchere, specially commissioned after an original Thomas Hope design in our archives.  The inset round top in black marble with grey veining is surrounded with intricate carving and ebonised frieze below with applied carving.  A finely carved central column is surrounded by four supports terminating in lion paw feet, on a plinth base with applied hand carved swans which stands on four block feet.

The piece was transported in its raw solid mahogany state to our Devon gilding workshops where it was entirely gessod and sanded before being ebonised with button polish and water gilded in 23¾ carat gold leaf.  The bright and matt finishing is particularly striking giving depth to the various designs whilst the intricate carving reflects the light where it is burnished.
