Condition Report
In overall very good condition and restored for electricity. The chasing and gilding are of remarkable quality.

Literature
This monumental pair of wall lights was inspired by a suite of six sconces delivered in 1787 by Pierre-Philippe Thomire for the King's salon des Jeux at the Château de Saint-Cloud, near Paris. Subsequently divided, the set is now housed in the Petit Trianon, the Louvre Museum and the J.P. Getty Museum in Malibu. This model was very popular during the 19th century and was copied by renowned bronze founders such as Alfred Beurdeley (1847-1919) and Henry Dasson (1825-1896).

Bibliography
A similar pair signed Henry Dasson and dated 1881 was sold by Artcurial in Paris on 16 May 2017.
