Large pair of Louis XVI-style sconces in gilt and chiseled bronze, with two twisted lights. This classic fixtures are crafted with a refined simplicity, and are decorated with goat heads, eagles holding garlands, masks crowned with flowers, acanthus and oak leaves. The stem accentuated by scrolling foliage, is topped by a pine cone finial.

Our pair of 19th century wall lights are designed after a drawing by Jean-Louis Prieur (1732-1795), French sculptor and chiseller and one of the most famous bronzemakers of the Neoclassical period. Executed around 1780, this drawing is housed in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Traditionally attributed to Pierre Gouthière (1732-1813) - gilder and chiseler of Kings Louis XV and Louis XVI, an identical pair is in the Château de Fontainebleu collection, and a second pair in the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Circa :1860
