Learn about Torchere

Sometimes also referred to as a 'candlestand'. A tall table with a circular top, standing on a tripod base, used to stand candlesticks or, in the later part of the 19th century, oil lamps. The tops are sometimes fitted with a gallery. Similar to wine tables or tea-kettle stands, they differ in height: tables are rarely more than two-and-a-half feet in height whereas candlestands are usually some 150 cm or more high. Several Australian cedar examples seem to have survived, but they are scarce.
