Pair of Early 19th Century Dutch Brass Wall Sconces
Dimensions: 17 1/4″H x 29″W x 10 1/2″D
A stunning pair of large, brass candle sconces from the earliest part of the 19th century, made in the Netherlands. These immense Dutch fixtures have extraordinary scroll form arms that have been adorned with hammered brass acanthus leaves that grow like vines on the burly brass scrolls. The sconces allow for large candles, which will look breathtaking once they have melted down, with dripping wax collected in brass bobeches. One bobeche has been slightly damaged. The brass has an aged patina that is has acquired in its 200+ year lifetime. c.1800.
