This pair of torchere stands is in excellent condition and is commensurate with their age. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges and tops but nothing significant considering the age of the item. They boast their original polish and as such have a superb colour and patination to the timber with some slight colour variation. There has been a very old repair to the tops of one of the stands a long time ago. Free of woodworm, solid in joint and ready to use.
