Large pair of torches from the end of the 19th century, in regulates with a dark patina, representing 2 characters from classical literature: Ivanhoe and Bois Guilbert.

Beautiful carvings in details, faces, armor.

They were electrified, but today the electrification system is missing; wear to the patina; an old restoration at the heart of Bois Guilbert.

Based on Walter Scott's early 19th century novel, Ivanhoe accompanies Richard Coeur-de-lion on the Crusades. On his return, he must fight with Bois Guilbert to recover his stronghold and give his throne back to King Richard. The 2 characters do not clash only on the 'political' level, it is also about saving Rebecca, who refused to Bois Guilbert who then accuses her of witchcraft ...

Height: 118 cm (without the spear tip)
