Torchères were used as stands for candelabra and were usually placed in pairs on either side of a table or in the corners of a room. For a very good example see Thomas Chippendale’s original drawing circa 1760 for a torchere in the George Lock collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum . See also “English Furniture Designs of the 18th Century”, Peter Ward-Jackson, 1958, p 46 and p 119.
