Hello: I purchased these torchieres in the late 1990s from a reputable antique dealer located on Howard St. in downtown Baltimore. He had them on consignment and provided me with a letter attributing them to Brandt. They are a full 6' tall, are very heavy, and the glass shades quite thick. The silvered leaves appear to be Brandt's Ginko design. They are signed in the metal, near the base. I'm not sure of the imprinted lettering, but can definitely make out the word "FRANCE". I would appreciate any additional inputs. Regards.

    I have seen several sets of repros of these lamps lately offered by auction, especially with the leaves, though these look somewhat better than the ones I have seen. It probably is not Brandt if the signature cannot be seen in good order. The real ones had alabaster shades mainly. The quality looks sketchy here.

    Hi Phil: Thanks for your input. They may or may not be by Brandt, but they were purchased in 1925, so they are not modern knock-offs. Regards.
