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.
