A stunning pair of old French wall lights. Amazing figural decoration to each sconce. These sconces came from a Bordeaux property.
They are made from bronze and each sconce has a lovely. Glass shade in the form of a rose. A gorgeous addition to your home. In good used antique condition. The wiring is working vintage two core.
These wall lights look very old and have a patina of time and some surface wear. The shades also have some surface wear and wear and chips around their necks where they fit into their holders. The shades are not identical, although it is hard to tell when looking at them. Please view the final photo which shows the condition of the neck of each shade.
One the shades is quite a tight fit into the holder. These sconces are old with history and a story to tell.
Wall fixing screws/hooks not supplied. Each wall light uses 1 x B22 bayonet fit bulb (not supplied). US and Canadian buyers may be able to find adapters to use these wall lights with their E12 bulbs (without the need to change the bulb holders).Please search on line'B22 to E12' adapter, they cost approx 3 USD each. You will need two adapters which simply twist into place and then allow you to insert your E12 bulbs which will then work normally on 110v. As the sconces have vintage electrics you may prefer to ask your electrician to rewire them. As with all used electrical equipment, it would be prudent to have the item checked, updated/rewired if deemed necessary by a qualified electrician. 10.2 inches in height approx (26 cm).
