Large Antique Four-Light Sconce, Early 1900’s NSP349
This is a large antique four-light sconce, dating from the early 1900’s. The sconce features a shield-shaped back plate, crowned with volutes and ornamented with an intricately cast acanthus leaf at the base. A splendid wrought iron arm, fastened to the back plate at the center and the top, curves upward to support a four-light chandelier that hangs from the arm by a loop finial. The chandelier body is composed of two iron pieces, bent at top and bottom into volutes and adorned with acanthus appliqués. At the center of the chandelier is a large, torch-shaped bobeche with a fleur-de-lis border. The bobeche holds a cluster of four lights. The bottom of the sconce finishes in a beautifully cast acorn finial. This wall lamp is in excellent condition; it has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The sconce is approx. 22” tall, 11 3/8” wide, and has a projection of approx. 14 ¾”.
