This pair of elegant, ornate, French bronze wall light sconces will add a touch of "Rococo/Baroque" style to any period home.
In excellent vintage condition, the bronze has some signs of natural tarnishing and its patina is darker in some areas than others, giving the look and feel of stylish early 19th century "French Empire" interiors. The rich, glossy gold is sumptuously ornate. Each sconce has two fixed arms with sockets for candle-shaped, screw fitting bulbs. Each branch terminates in a decorated bronze drip tray, of overlapping Acanthus leaves, with the original imitation "dripping" candle covers that slide on and off of the stems easily. The candle drips are "chippy" at the tops and slightly discoloured, for an authentic look and feel.

These lights are wired with the original vintage wiring. They are both in full working order, the last photo shows one of the light lit, in full working order, complete with "candle" bulbs.
*Please note that the light bulbs are for display only and will not be dispatched with the sconces due to the various voltages used around the world.

The lights fix securely to the wall, through a hole in the back plate.
The drop measures 38ms/ 15" from the top of the bulb holder to the base (48cms/ 18¾" long, once the bulb is fitted.) The back plate is 26cms/ 10¼" long.
Each sconce is 30cms/ 11 ¾" wide and weighs approx. 1.4kgs/ 3 lbs!

**Please note that vintage lighting can never be assumed to be safe. It is imperative that these wall lights are is checked, tested and installed by a competent electrician before use. They may need to be re-wired, to become compliant with modern standards. We strongly recommend that these lights are checked by a qualified electrician in your own country to comply with local safety regulations.
