Antique French Baroque Style Heavy Bronze 3 Light Decorative Sconce Wall Light. I'm told it was made 1920 or earlier.
Wired for electric lights (see photos). Looks like was used with only candles first and then later electrified. Hanging bracket, screws & prisms added in refurbishing.
Adorned with many different types & sizes of quality sparkling leaded glass prisms. There are more places that prisms can be added, the refurbisher decided to only add what is shown.
Can be used as electric light fixture or just with candles if desired. Thicks heavy bronze (not a bronze coating). Beautiful etched & sweeping floral designs incised throughout bronze.Hanger for hanging sconce on wall installed on back of sconce (see photos). A very beautiful authentic artistic antique French Baroque all brass wall sconce. All solid brass (this is an all solid brass piece not an overlay of brass). Note: It's a very time consuming and an expensive process plus takes a very good artist to produce these type of all thick bronze wall sconces. First each piece is drawn out then sculpted in clay, then molds are made from the sculpted pieces, then molten bronze is poured into the molds, then when the bronze cools the molds are cracked open and the bronze pieces are hand chiseled away from the mold to get all the fragment out, then the different pieces are assembled.
After this the bronze is hand polished or a patina applied (done with acids on the bronze) or gold leaf overlay may be applied to the bronze & burnished if the artist desires or if the commission requires it. Great for your home, office, house, hotel, condo, upscale rental or wherever your imagination takes you. Would be a wonderful ornate antique piece for a designer or architect to use for showcasing a certain area of their design.
