Each sconce takes two candelabra size light bulbs, 40 watts each. The candle covers have been replaced, these are new antique candle drip covers. The design of the sconces is wonderful leaves in green paint, very organic and lovely, with gold gilt bows and arms.
Italian sconces do not always have back plates and these do not, but they are 6 across the back, so your electrical box should be hidden behind all of the leaves. The gold gilt has light wear from age as expected. One of the wheat pieces is loose, as shown in photo number 3, but it sits right in the sconce and won't go anywhere once they are hung.
