These excellent quality Fin de siecle hand chased bronze figural sconces retain scant traces of original fire gilding and boast warm brown to gold patina with some spots of verdigris. Most likely gas originally, they were adapted to electricity in the early 1900s and have very nice, early candelabra sockets inside the foliate embossed brass surrounds. Each measures a most decorative 10 ½ tall x 4 wide x 9 deep and boast beautifully cast leafy branches to support the sockets. You will note holes at the bases and on the backs from previous mounting and they MUST be re-wired. The ends of the pipes are not tapped/threaded, so the sockets all come looseheld in place primarily by the wring.
