Pair of 19th Century Arts & Crafts Oak Torcheres

LOVEDAY
A fine pair of architectural Arts and Crafts oak torchere / stands in the manner of Sir Robert Lorimer. Scottish Circa 1880. Finely carved, the lobed circular capitals above waisted and reeded stems with moulded collars, over friezes incised with holly leaves and berries on baluster supports and splayed square plinths carved with thistles. These fine torcheres have an architectural quality allied to the Arts and Crafts aesthetic, which suggests that they may be by the celebrated Scottish designer and architect Robert Lorimer, (1864-1929). It is always hard to attribute without provenance or a signature (as his pieces were not signed) and from research these would appear to be a one-off, but it is quite possible Sir Robert Lorimer was the designer and maker of these fine stands.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
