Louis XVI style

Bronze

Cm 50 high

These 19th century French bronze wall sconces or appliqués display a variety of the neoclassical elements found in the Louis XVI style. The central vertical of the sconces is in the form of a cornucopia decorated with acanthus leaves, from which the vine-like candle arms sprout. These are "suspended" from a stylized ribbon bow. The sconces have each been retrofit with electrical wiring, sockets and white glass candle covers. The bronze is not highly polished, and has a nice patina of age.
