For your consideration is this exquisite large pair of vintage Italian Gold Gilt Candle Sconces. This is an early pair of sconces, so the gold has aged to rich warm gold. The sconces are made of steel with hand carved wood and gesso under the gold gilt finish. They are rare to find in this wonderful condition.
While some repairs have been made and there is a bit of cracking in the wooden pieces, they are very stable and huge and fabulous. As shown in the photos, the wooden portion of the sconces is attached to a steel frame with screws and bolts. They are signed "Made in Italy". The sconces each measure 38" tall by 10 1/4" across and they stand off of the wall 7 1/2. Top feathers measure 12" long with 9" plumes.
The Bow and Wreath measure 20" long by 10" wide and the arrows on the bottom measure 5 long. They scones have been newly rewired and are working well. The candle covers are original and gesso covered and painted. Each sconce takes two candelabra base light bulbs, up to 40 watts each, unless you are using LED light bulbs, in that case, you may use a higher wattage bulb. The condition of the sconces is very good, everything seems to be in place and intact.The sconces each have a triangle hanger on the back for hanging on your wall on either a nail or screw.
