Beautiful and elegant vintage Italian gilt candelabra wall sconce with incredible luminescent gilt-brushed light blue glass flowers. Five leafy branches finished off with the flowers are cinched with a frilly bow. One opening for a candle.Back loop for attachment to wall. Piece has the original metal hang tag embossed with Made in Italy attached underneath the candle stem. This is an uncommon piece, with the glass flowers. Its quite beautiful in person; the gold wash on the flowers is picked up from the gilt metalwork and its a very warm and reflective piece. Elegant with some fanciness and femininity thrown in, in a classic way, as only the Italians can master. 17 long x 11 wide x 6-1/2 deep. Condition Opinion: Good vintage condition. The piece has great patina and presents beautifully but it is not perfect... If youre seeking a mint piece, this is not it. If youre seeking unique, fabulous and with some age (like many of us), you wont be too concerned. Specifically, two of the three flowers are loose in that they lift up on their metal rods. They dont come off but they wobble and are fragile.
One of the three is glued and fixed in. Hanging on a wall wont be an issue. One of the flowers has chipped glass on the back, shown, and it looks like one flower might have some internal cracking, also shown from the back. Neither of these issues are visible when the piece is looked at in a regular fashion.The gilt is somewhat fragile and may fleck off if/when the piece is handled. It is vintage, used and has seen life. This is normal and expected and doesnt detract. There are some areas of scratching, loss, etc. Overall nothing too major if youre not too fussy.
