Pair of Regence-style three-branched wall-lights crafted of ormolu, or gilt-bronze, after a model by André-Charles Boulle (1642-1732). They are fixed to the wall by means of an open-work backplate, richly adorned with masks, trophy with quiver and torch, palmettes, laurel garlands and ova. Beautifully-chased, this set of gold wall sconces are a fine exemple of Louis XIV taste, brought back to fashion in the 19th century.
Our two wall sconces are comparable to a set of four wall sconces in gilded bronze, attributed to André-Charles Boulle, housed in the Louvre Museum.
Dim: W: 9,1 in - D: 10,2in - H: 18,1in.
Dim: L:23cm, P:26cm, H:46cm.
Both sconces are in overall very good condition. They can be wired for electricity.
