These fantastic, brass sconces are original to the 1920s. The shield-shaped back plates begin with an urn top finial, which rest upon two volute style curls. The banded back plate displays foliate details, and comes to a point just below where the sconce arm convenes with the plate. Ribbed and having a U-curve, the sconce’s arms both begin and end in an ornately cast acanthus adornment. These sconces feature unique bobeches that are two parts. The base of the bobeche, which meets the acanthus cap of the sconce’s arm, is ornamented with shell and swag fine points. The second piece, which serves to fit into the bottom, provides a modestly bordered candle cup for the pristine paper candle covers of these elegant antique sconces. These wall lamps are in excellent condition, have been professionally rewired, and come with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. These are 10 3/8” long, 5” wide and protrude 6” from the wall.
