A Beautiful pair of Antique French. A Gorgeous, very rare pair of French sconces. Made from quality bronze and dating to the 19th century.
These wall lights would have originally been used with candles. With beautiful decoration, the sunflowers at the base of each sconce are exquisite. These wall lights came from a history filled Bordeaux manoir. I have never seen another pair like them in many years of searching for treasures. A fabulous addition to your home!
These sconces are in good used condition. With a patina of time and all-over surface wear to the gilt finish as can be seen in the photos.
Please view all the photos to the see the condition in detail. The bulb holders are wooden and the former owner has recently wrapped electrical tape around them for safety. Wall fixing hooks/screws not supplied.Use 6 x E14 screw fit bulbs (not supplied). Please search'E14 to E12 adapter' they cost approx 3 USD each and you will require six of them. The addapters simply screw into place, allowing you to insert your E12 bulbs.
10 inches in height (25.5 cm). 10.6 inches in width measuring across the cups (27 cm). Stand 6.1 inches approx from the wall (15.5 cm).
As with all used electrical equipment, it would be prudent to have the item checked, updated/rewired if deemed necessary and fitted into your home by a qualified electrician.
