Each torchere takes the form of a bronze sculpture of a winged putto holding aloft an ormolu torch with ten lights, on scrolling branches with floral decorations. The candleholders are in the form of flower bulbs, and there are shaped, flower-form drip pans below. The casting and chasing employed is of superior quality, indicative of one the finest foundries of this period, such as Deniere or Barbedienne. Each torchere is set on a fluted cylindrical pedestal built from Vert Maurin marble and set on square marble bases.
