Pair of Gilt French Empire Wall Sconces


Ca. 1800

A pair of antique French Empire wall sconces of exceptional quality and condition. Three arms on a gilt back-plate with simulated candle tapers. Castings are of the best quality available with fine, sharp detail accentuating every visible surface. This pair of sconces were electrified at a later date with the wire mounted on the exterior of the arm; a practice which was common among those who could afford to convert their exceptional fixtures with the emergence of electricity at the turn of the century.
