This is a wonderful pair of antique bronze neoclassical sconces, dating from the first part of the 20th Century. The sconces feature a unique torch-shaped back plate, crowned with an intricately cast draped urn filled with roses. The base of the back plate is sheathed in acanthus leaves. From the center of the back plate spring three curved arms, which are in the shape of flowers. Leaves at the base of the arms frame the stems, which support elegant blooming bobeches. The curves of the arms are balanced at the bottom by superbly cast birds’ head figures. The outer two arms are joined by a draped garland. These wall lamps are in excellent condition, with one small casting mistake (pictured) which was formed when the sconces were made and does not detract from the beauty of the sconce. They have been professionally rewired and come with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The sconces are 23 ¼” tall, 12” wide, and extend 7 ½” from the wall.
