The acanthus-wrapped lion monopodia relate quite closely to the chimera-supported tripod tables published in Thomas Hope's Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807, pls. XV and XXXII. An example of this design. A pair of torchéres incorporating these supports in the Victoria and Albert Museum (W.35-1946), is illustrated in M. Jourdain, Regency Furniture 1795-1830, London, rev. edn., 1965, p. 21, fig. 21. Another pair of tripod torcheres with palm-wrapped lion monopodia sold from the Coke Collection, Christie's London, 17 October 1996 (£29,900).
