PAIR Antique Solid Brass French Lyre Harp Wired Double Sconces Old Verdigris
PAIR Antique Solid Brass French Lyre Harp Wired Double Sconces Old Verdigris Paint? These are super high quality and very charming and beautiful! They appear to have been recently wired… A vintage to antique pair of solid brass double arm electric sconces waiting for a new home! These are a pair and I want to point out that one has significant more green than the other. I believe this is old paint. It may be that one has been cleaned of the old paint. The sconce that is more brass in color appears to have had a repair done where the 2 arms flare out. It is very solid and sturdy. Please view all the photos. Gorgeous fluted detail to the bobeches or candle cups that each have 8 holes for crystal prisms. Fluting on oval back plate. A lovely French Lyre design to the back. Gorgeous trio of 3 realistic and detailed leaves. These sconces also had glass prisms that hung from the brass scrolls as you can see the holes at the end of each scroll and top 4 wires (10) for a total of 26 prisms in total per sconce. You can imagine the lovely light reflected with the solid brass when they have crystal prisms. I know many antique and vintage lighting collectors like to add the prisms they have collected or choose to leave them off. It can be a fun project to find the style, shape and number that you need for your lighting! The sconces are of good weight as well. Weigh over 4 pounds for the pair. They measure 14 1/2 inches in height or length. 8 inches spread at the widest point. The fluted oval back plate that mounts to the wall is 3 3/4 inches width. 5 1/2 inches in length. I have looked all over for old marks as to the maker or manufactured but there are none. They are a great pair and waiting to grace a home with their quality and beauty!
