Pair of Venetian Style Eglomisé Wall Sconces, 20th Century
ITEM #: 903DAW13H
VENETIAN STYLE SILVER-GILT EGLOMISÉ WALL SCONCES
Probably mid-20th century
Item # 903DAW13H
A very striking pair of two-light candelabra, the scalloped body of these delightful sconces is wrapped in pewter to affix the conforming bevelled eglomisé glass panels to the backing. The candle branches join the body on a turned aluminum medallion, these being crafted of painted tubular metal and turned wood all distressed to appear to be a singular material.
They are an unusual and quite powerful design element for the entryway where something eye-catching is required, as they carefully juxtapose modernity and sleekness with a historical surface and aged materials.
Measurements: 21 1/2" H x 12 1/4" W x 8 3/4" D
Old cracks in the eglomisé panels; aluminum sconce backings hand-turned in our shop to better finish the joint of the sconce to the panels; will need to be professionally hard-wired upon receipt; the cords project from the back and the wall may have to be recessed slightly to allow for a flush mounting.
