Rare Pair of Antique Double-Arm Cast Bronze Sconces with Unusual Prism Flowers NSP464
This is a very unusual pair of antique cast bronze double-arm sconces, dating from the early 1900’s. The sconces begin with a triad of three-dimensional flowers, beautifully crafted from clear and amethyst crystal prisms on bronze stems, and springing from a bronze urn at the top of the backplate. The flowers are repeated with a second cluster halfway down the backplate. The cast bronze backplate features an elegant shape and a gorgeous patina. A pair of vine-like arms extends from the base of the backplate. Between the arms is a crystal flower, which is draped with faceted beads connecting to a corresponding flower on each bobeche. Each swag is ornamented with an unusual purple bead ornamented with small florets. A large, smooth teardrop accents each arm, connected by an additional beaded swag. These wall lamps are in excellent condition; they have been professionally rewired. The sconces are 14” tall, 9 ½” wide, and project 4” from the wall.
