A beautiful Torcheres Monumental Italian Alabaster 6 foot statue floor lamp with 3 twenty inch cherubs on the base , we were told by a sculptor that the cherubs faces were carved in the late 1800's and the wiring was probably added in the early 1900's when electricity evolved. This piece came from the Hoover mansion in N Canton wher dignatary's such as Presidents were often go. My family acquired it in the late 1970's. Measurements are H 72" W 24" on the top, 16" for cherubs and the base, the lamp is very beautiful piece of history.
Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000
