Pair Vintage French Louis XVI Style Vintage Brass Two Arm Sconces circa 1920

A pair of Neoclassical Louis XVI style vintage French solid brass two arm sconces from France circa 1920. The extraordinary amount of raised detail on this pair of French sconces is simply terrific. Every surface visible is embellished in a symmetrical and balanced Neoclassical pattern to maximize the reflective quality of the brass. The backplate is a stylized quiver of arrows symbolic of King Louis XVI's quest for justice for his people while each of the two candle arms have a graceful as they extend away from the wall. The arms each support a circular bobeche or drip pan designed to capture dripping wax from burning candles and the circular nozzle is just the right size for actual candles. The sconces were drilled at one time for electricity and may be wired again for installation.
