England, 20th Century.

This model of lamp, without pedestal, was invented by the Regency lamp-manufacturer James Smethurst of New Bond Street, whose registered mark of post-1814 has been recorded on period examples. A set of four lamps of identical pattern – although not apparently signed – is in the collection of the Dukes of Devonshire at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire. These were originally supplied for the Saloon of Devonshire House, London, where they are recorded in Henry Hunt’s watercolour of 1817. Two were exhibited in ‘Country House Lighting’, Exhibition Catalogue, 1992, no.120.

Piranesi’s engraving of a Roman marble candelabrum excavated on the site of Hadrian’s Villa by Gavin Hamilton in 1769.

The design is derived from an ancient Roman marble candelabrum excavated on the site of Hadrian’s Villa by Gavin Hamilton in 1769 and subsequently engraved in Gian-Battista Piranesi’s Vasi, Candelabri, Cippi, Sarcofagi, Tripodi, Lucerne, et Ornamenti Antichi, published in 1778. A pair of identical torchères sold Christie’s, London 20 May 2010, lot 10.
