Pair Vintage Italian Louis XV Style Gilt Bronze Sconces circa 1920
The wonderful rococo styling of these vintage Italian Louis XV style gilt bronze sconces circa 1920 is just delightful. Please be sure to enlarge the photographs to see the playful details that make these sconces so delightful. Because these sconces are a true pair they are not mirror images of the other but instead are of complementary shape. Set in the center of each sconce is an Oriental figure-all the rage in the court of Louis XV-one male and one female who are facing one another. Their fancy dress and fanciful head wear allude to the lavish fantasy as do the sinuous shape of the two arms on each sconce that reach up and out to support the bobeche and candle nozzle. Note the organic and natural profile of the arms and nozzles with nary a straight line to be seen-the true hallmark of the rococo age when naturalism was in vogue as opposed to sober symmetry and balance. The sconces retain their original metal labels sayng Made in Italy and have been electrified for in wall installation. Each of the four candle arms will accommodate a chandelier base bulb.
